Armenian music is used as a vehicle for presenting Armenian culture. Music can be analyzed as a component of an overall cultural strategy. Also considered is the interrelationship between music and education. These themes and others are presented in a live discussion on the show.

When playing works of different styles and times, it is necessary to subject duduk to the artistic rules of the work played. We're talking with Artak Asatryan and Georgi Minasyan Junior about the newly published Chrestomathy comprised by their teacher, the merited figure of Armenian music art, Georgi Minasyan. "The more I examine world music, the more I understand the universal value of Narekatsi's taghs," says Artak Asatryan. You'll listen to music pieces by Komitas, Vivaldi, R. Amirkhanyan and Mozart that are arranged for duduk and were performed during the presentation of the Chrestomathy.
