YEREVAN, MARCH 16, ARMENPRESS. A special site has been created in Turkey through which the Ottoman music archive – preserved due to Armenian musician Hambardzum Limonchyan - will be introduced to the public. As "Armenpress" reports Turkish newspaper "Zaman" informs about that.
The newspaper points out that the application of notes in Turkish music started in the 19th century during the period of reign of sultan Selim III. Due to Sultan Selim's wish Armenian composer and musician Hambardzum Limonchyan from Constantinople discovered a type of musical notation which received the name "Hambardzum’s Music Notation" in Turkey.
Among other things the Turkish newspaper stated: "Due to that musical notation applied in Turkey in the 19th century it was possible to prevent the loss of numerous musical works created in two centuries in Turkey. The majority of those works were kept in archives for a long while. Now lots of works recorded in "Hambardzum's Music Notation" will be accessible for the Turkish public due to the newly created site."
