Abstract

The Ottoman State, which dominates the vast geography, did not destroy the cultures of the nations it ruled, but rather supported them. Within the framework of this tolerance, cultures have fused with each other and from time to time different nations have served the Turkish Culture. One of the most important of these nations is the Armenians who lived with the Turks for a long time. In this study, we described the lives of 11 Armenian composers who lived in the Ottoman borders and served Turkish music. These composers put their works in the forms of Turkish music. Their works are still loved and played, sung and listened to in the concerts performed today. These artists have had services to Turkish music both in performance, in education and in written sources. The Armenian artists we worked with studied in Ottoman schools and studied Turkish music as well as their own music. It is understood that they have mastered the intricacies of Turkish music in their works. Our artists were in different geographies of the Ottoman Empire and contributed to Turkish music.
