Early in his eclectic education Hovhaness (1911-2000) developed a passion for the mysticism of sound, which was fed by exposure to Armenian, Japanese and Chinese cultures. When combined with his formal studies at the New Eangland conservatory, the result is a compositional synthesis of both Western and Oriental styles, fashioned in such away as to be uniquely accessible to listeners of all musical tastes.
