« One of the best conductor in Armenia today, exceptionally gifted for contemporary music (but not only) conducting the State chamber Orchestra of Armenia in a piece composed by Geghuni Chitchian.
Both WOMEN artists! Not that it makes a difference, but still…
Armenians ought to be proud of the feminine dynamics of the piece and the performance. For lovers of contemporary classical music, I urge you to listen to the end the piece, which is on You Tube ! » (Multimedia)
Gerald PAPASIAN, Opera Director
« The orchestration of my work ’’ Icnocuicatl’’ is very dense and must sound like an orchestra. For this the instrumental writing of each part is very demanding. The musicians of Ensemble Polychromie made it wonderfully well. But for overall cohesion to be possible, excellent leadership was needed on the part of Nvart Andreassian, the conductor. Thus the creation was perfectly carried out with great emotion, enthusiasm and superb good humor, which only adds beauty to our work. The quality of the musical sharing with Nvart Andreassian and with the musicians of Ensemble Polychromie was exceptional on several levels. »
Gualtiero Dazzi, Composer Italy/France
« Nvart Andreassian is a very special person. There is no such a porfessional, a confirmed specialist, so meticulous and constant in the interpretation of new contemporary music in Russia. Immediately, one feels that she has a great musical experience and high capacities in human relations. She knows precisely how to read and interpret the musical drama. »

Georgiy Isaakian, Artistic Director/Intendant, Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre
« I know Nvart Andreassian since 25 years as conductor and as the Artistic director of Ensemble Polychormie.
Mrs Andreassian has invited me several times from 1983 to 1993 to produce and record with Ensemble Polychromie for Radio France and Radio Television Belge pieces of Luigi DALLAPICCOLA, Edison DENISOV and Anton WEBERN.
She has impressed me with her professional and personal maturity as well as her large musical, artistic, literary and also vocal cultivation and open minded approach of contemporary music.
I liked immediately her very modern and direct style as she puts herself at the disposal of the piece and the composer.
It is undoubted that she is a charismatic person and has a large scale of professional abilities. »

« Nvart Andreassian is an excellent musician, an earnest person and the hope of the company; a true wealth for a theatre.
I very much appreciate her work with Sergei Neller’s opera, “Tintagiles’ death” which we presented in Helikon Theatre of Moscow.
The soloists, the orchestra and all members of the company received Nvart’s support ; our chef immensely respected. Her desire and willingness to work at a high level of efficiency have been highly appreciated.
She is an artist, a painter of the music, and I am very motivated to work with her again. »

She has done a excellent job with her perfect knowledge of the kind of complex works.
She has an excellent ear, a perfect sense of rhythm and tempo, and a very clear and exact technique of conducting.

« Nvart Andreassian's passion for music burns through her innovative and personally inflected conducting vocabulary , an insightful reading of the score, and a clarion interpretation of the tonal arguments. Musical expressiveness flows forth from the inexhaustible wellspring of her personality and character, resonating above the literal score. Nowhere was that more true than in the works performed at the Small Philharmonic Hall. »

F. Mallet - Radio France- France musique
« The ear rapidly became accustomed to visited conductor Nvart Andreassian's interpretation of the Bach Concerto in D Minor. There was none of the customary "clinical" precision : the flowing chaconne-like grace of the Adagio, the gentle passionate swelling of the piano, cool balancing violin, and the richly figurative finale providing a showcase for the soloist, all seemed natural. »
