Press resonance:

“Klaaspärlimängul” on ikka olnud klassikalise muusika ebatraditsioonilisi esitusi. Kammerõhtu “Pardon, Fryderyk!” idee oli omapärane. /.../ Pariisis tegutsev armeenlanna Meri Vardanjan esitas Chopini muusikat armeenia rahvapillil qanon. Vahelduvalt kõlasid Chopini 10 masurkat ja valssi... Solisti mäng oli veenev, muusikaliselt väljapeetud ja esitatud tehnilise üleolekuga. Nii väliselt kui kõlavärvilt eesti kannelt meenutav  pill on tehniliselt ja dünaamika poolest küllaltki mitmekülgne. On tänuväärne ja põnevgi tutvustada klassikalise muusika abil maailmale oma maa rahvapilli. (Alo Põldmäe, Sirp, 31.07.09; Estonia, whole article)

The qānon (in Armenian: քանոն) is a string instrument found in Near Eastern traditional music based on mugham. It is basically a zither with a narrow trapezoidal soundboard. The strings are stretched over a single bridge poised on fish-skins on one end, attached to tuning pegs at the other end.
