"Witness and Rebirth" Explores Armenian Genocide Through Music

“Manoukian handled its rhythmic drive with undisguised enthusiasm and aggressively sliced her way through the first movement’s cadenza. However, Manoukian’s best moments were still ahead of her. After the orchestra’s string section fell in sync with her during the second movement, she displayed an impressive amount of stamina and consistency of tone in the repetitive third movement.”

Mark Rudio, San Francisco Classical Voice
Symphony exhibits wide range of emotional power
"In the opening Allegro the violin entered with the roar of the timpani, and it was quickly evident that Manoukian plays with fire tempered with taste. In the Adagio ... the violinist smiled as the final Allegro began flashing its moods, which sometimes tended to almost merge the violin with the orchestra. Manoukian's playing of the famous cadenza in the finale was inspired."
Bill Varble, Mail Tribune (Oregon)
Cape orchestra triumphs in stirring performance
"Especially in the beautiful adagio movement, Manoukian's playing was as masterful and soul-satisfying as one could wish - warmly expressive sound, exquisitely turned phrases, fine shadings of color. Her assertive, tossed-off virtuoso patterning in the first and last allegro movements was impressive as well."
Anna Crebo, Cape Cod Times
