Armenian Violinist Sets World Record


YEREVAN (Armenpress) — Renowned violinist Nikolay Madoyan has set a Guinness World Record for an uninterrupted performance which lasted 33 hours, 2 minutes and 41 seconds.

The performance was held February 11-12, 2017 in the Komitas Chamber Music Hall in Yerevan. Madoyan said he dedicates the record to the country and for the heroes of the four-day war of Artsakh.

“I selected 59 famous and rather difficult violin pieces of music to set the record. I also included four Armenian works, three from Komitas and one from Edvard Baghdasaryan,” the violinist said.

Madoyan has set another record, which has been submitted for approval by the Guinness Record office, but they haven’t yet responded. The record was set by playing Nikolay Rimski-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee in just 46 seconds.
