About Georgy Minasyan (Minasov)
Georgy Minasyan (Minasov) (born July 18, 1933) is an Honored Artist of the Republic of Armenia, duduk master, inventor, teacher, music educator, and founder of Dudukner Ensemble in Yerevan, Armenia. He graduated from Baku Musical College where he performed with Folk Instruments Orchestra of Azerbaijan State Radio and Television as a solo performer. In 1983 he moved to Yerevan, Armenia and joined the Gussan and Folk Music Ensemble. Georgy Minasov currently teaches duduk at the R. Melikyan Music College in Yerevan and performs locally and internationally throughout the world.
Besides being a masterful performer, Georgy Minasyan is also an experienced teacher, an inventor and a tireless investigator of the instrument. His patented modifications include adding a system of metal levers to traditional duduk to essentially increase instrument’s range and significantly enlarge its repertoire beyond traditional folk tunes.
His “Armenian Duduk Method” is a result of many years in the performing and teaching experiences of Georgy Minasov, in whose “artistic laboratory” because of his inquisitive mind he never stops, not even for one minute.
