The use of symbolism in composition is an effective tool for adding expressivity and meaning to a composition. This paper explores the use of symbolism in Vasken Ohanian’s Recollections of the Forgotten, an oratorio in memory of the Armenian Genocide as a representative work. It will first examine the historical background of the Armenian Genocide to give context to the work, and then it will analyze the use of symbolism in both the text and music of Recollections of the Forgotten.
