Eduard Bagdasaryan (or Badgasarian)
Bagdasaryan was born in Turkmenistan in 1948. In 1957, his voice was accidently discovered. He was advised to attend a musical school. After that, Bagdasaryan attended the Baku conservatory where he studied with Arkadyevna Mikaelian, who also taught Muslim Magomayev.
I wish to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the preparation of the biographical notes and pictures.
