The end of the 1930s... Konstantin, a 10-year-old musician of the military orchestra of the neighboring country, played the piano and queued up for days to convey to his jailed mother the apples he had bought with the money he earned... "The son of the people's enemy" would later turn the State Variety Orchestra of Armenia into a symbol of the Soviet empire and of his homeland. This episode of our program is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the innovative musician Konstantin Orbelyan, thanks to whom Armenian pop-jazz music became the property of the world.
