    Watch: Tigran Hamasyan Performs Facebook Live for Armenia

    Armenian composer and pianist Tigran Hamasyan gave a fifty-minute Facebook Live concert on the official Armenian government Facebook page from his home in Los Angeles today. The event is part of a twice-weekly concert series initiated by the government "to make the daily lives of self-isolated and isolated citizens more interesting," according to Armenian Public Radio. You can watch it here:

    Tigran Hamasyan has released two albums—Mockroot and An Ancient Observer—and the EP For Gyumri on Nonesuch Records. "I believe that our childhood experience shapes who we become when we grow into adulthood," Hamasyan said about that 2018 EP, which was named in tribute to his hometown of Gyumri, Armenia. "For Gyumri is an ode to my birthplace, the town that nourished my childhood world with great experiences and made me who I am."

    Randy Newman is a special surprise guest caller on the latest episode of Office Hours Live with Tim Heidecker. "You truly are a hero to me," Heidecker says. "You're in the Top Three. C&C Music Factory is No. 1." You can hear their conversation here. Newman's set at Newport Folk Festival's "Folk On" last Saturday was among "The 10 Best Things We Saw" there, says Rolling Stone.
