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.

After graduation, he was invited to Yerevan and in 1954 Bagdasaryan became a soloist of the Armenian Theater of Opera and Ballet.

He became one of their main singer. Bagdasryan won second prize in 1957 at Moscow World Youth Festival, the first prize going to Artur Aidinyan.

I wish to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the preparation of the biographical notes and pictures.
