A scan of Makar Yekmalian,'s lovely Nocturne in B-flat minor was uploaded to IMSLP, but sadly remains stuck in the copyright approval process. It may or may not clear. In the discussion of same,
http://imslp.org/index.php?title=Specia ... read=19100
this link was given:
https://issuu.com/haigavakian9/docs/mak ... _for_piano
A nicely typset edition of Yekmalian piano works by Haig Avakian available for free download. (You will probably need to register.) There are also a number of other excellent typesets of piano, instrumental and orchestral works by this editor that are well worth investigating, and probably more scores on that site to be found.
Here's a recording on YouTube:

EDIT: It looks like all of Haig Avakian's editions are also available on archive.org.

I heard this ballet on the radio two days ago; it was fantastic!

It appears that Robert Andreasyan (1913-1971) published a collection of 11 pieces in 1965 which included the 6 Komitas arrangements.

There's a copy of Garun A on Scribd - could someone with an account kindy grab a copy for us?
https://www.scribd.com/doc/126637281/Ga ... et-Komitas

That file may have come from this site. (Link dead or possibly malformed)
https://www.leschroniquesdupiano.com/fi ... 360324.pdf

A scan of that book would be gold, but any other of his arrangements would be also be greatly appreciated.

I see listed in Worldcat a single Prelude by Eduard Bagdasaryan issued by Peters in 1962 (apparently a reprint from an Armenian edition and out of print). Is anyone familiar with this, i.e., is this a separate piece or is it extracted from the set of 24 Preludes? Thanks.

I'm still trying to locate the missing page to the set of 24 without luck.
