Programme Note:
A Longing For Joy for flute and marimba was completed in 2008 while Andonian was pursuing doctoral studies in music composition at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dedicated to Marc Grauwels and Sarah Mouradoglou, A Longing For Joy musically depicts the need for people to seek fulfilment, happiness and peace. More specifically, the incorporation of Armenian folk idioms alludes to the struggle of the Armenian people to overcome past traumas and to look forward to a brighter, happier future at the same time.
