It was composed in 2013, along with a series of duets featuring the violin and piano. Karen Shahgaldyan (violin) Armine Grigoryan (piano) Live at Mezzo Classic House, January 2014 From the program notes: Modeled on “Three Images of Los Angeles,” its proceeding opus, this energetic and impassioned duet turns to Southwest for inspiration, drawing from memories of the composer’s car trips between California and Texas. In the summer of 2009, several such long drives were taken along Interstate 40 highway, during Manukyan’s one-year residency in Texas. The inspiring landscapes of Arizona, so richly available to the eye of the Interstate drivers, have obviously left a lasting impression on Manukyan. “A Night in Flagstaff” portrays a night spent in Flagstaff, Arizona – a beautiful small town off of the Interstate where travelers frequently stop for a night’s sleep. Draining all the melodic material out of the introduction theme right out of the first bar, the movement slowly turns into a lush, almost erotic love song, exploiting the full range of the violin.
