Asmik Grigorian has learned belatedly of the death, 3 months ago, of the English polymath:
I did not know. ..
He was the one who influenced my last choice to become an opera soloist at a crucial time.
He was the one,who took my hand and told me that i will manage to fight all my fears.
He was the one who brought me to the LNOBT. it was my debut in my country.
He was the one I carried in my heart all 16 years of my career with biggest gratefulness.
He is the one,i will carry in my heart and memory till the end.
He is my first director.
Thank you for everything Jonathan!
Rest in peace.
I will never forget.
