The performance at the Concert Hall within the campus Music Building will include works by Debussy, Shostakovich, Franck and Armenian composers.
Mardirossian received critical praise for his recital opening the 2005-06 season of the Keyboard Concerts series, which is based at Fresno State. Born in Yerevan, Armenia, and trained at the Paris Conservatoire, Mardirossian enjoys an international recital career and has recorded works by Schubert, Händel, Brahms, Bach and Eric Tanguy.
