The Long Goodbye (Dinkjian)

The Long Goodbye, performed by The Secret Trio (Tamer Pinarbasi – kanun, Ismail Lumanovski – clarinet, Ara Dinkjian – oud)

This piece is a tribute to the heartbreak caused by the COVID pandemic. The Secret Trio writes: “Sometimes death comes suddenly. Other times, it lingers. During this Corona virus pandemic, many of us had to experience the long illness, isolation, and demise of our loved ones without having the opportunity to physically be with them, or give them a traditional ritualistic funeral. This is song is about that heartbreaking experience.”
