Born in Yerevan in 1921, Babajanian was probably the countrys most important composer and pianist. His extraordinary musical talent was evident by the time he was 5, and he entered the Yerevan State Musical Conservatory at the age of 7.
Babajanian was active in most genres and wrote many popular songs in collaboration with leading poets. Many of his compositions were also rooted in Armenian folk music and folklore. In 1956, he was named the Peoples Artist of Armenia. The Soviet Union awarded him a similar title in 1971.
This statue is located in the gardens of the Opera House and beside what is called Swan Lake. It shows him playing, seated at a granite piano that extends for at least four metres.

hello erhan ~
i like the dramatic angle you have chosen for this shot, and especially like the orange cast of light on this statue. it's a bit hard for me to imagine the 5 year old little boy prodigy who eventually turned into this old man, but that makes it all the more interesting :)
nice capture ~
