Here's an interesting string orchestra score (also featuring piano) from a modern Armenian composer. What few works I've heard by this composer (check Fyrexianoff's page on Youtube for a piano sonata and a symphony) are dense and powerful statements. Even his works for children that are built around simple Armenian folk melodies (which were included in some of those collections on the Russian/Soviet thread) quickly err on the atonal side and incorporate tightly-clustered notes.
