This past June, 19-year-old violinist Diana Adamyan was selected as the prizewinner in Armenia’s 2020 Khachaturian Violin Competition. As part of her win, the world-class Armenian musician has been awarded a recording contract with PARMA Recordings.

The 2020 competition was conducted online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with musicians and jury members streaming in to participate. PARMA CEO Bob Lord was one of the seven members on the jury for this year’s competition.

“Diana presents a poise and excellence that many artists spend their entire lives trying to achieve,” says Lord. “Her performances in the competition were top-notch, and we’re thrilled to welcome her into the fold of PARMA artists.”

“First of all, it’s a great honor for me to be selected as a winner of the Khachaturian Competition this year!” Adamyan stated. “I’m so happy I had this opportunity to participate in this wonderful competition in my motherland, Armenia!”

“The recording with PARMA will be my first recording in my musical life,” she continued, “so I feel very excited to have this wonderful opportunity. I’m very much looking forward to working with PARMA Recordings!”

Congratulations Diana, and welcome to the PARMA family!
