One of the best works by Khachaturian: Masquerade Suite
Woof, woof to everybody! Aram Khachaturian is one of the best music composers in the 20th century. Born in Georgia, he moved to Moscow at the age of 19 and he graduated in the Moscow Conservatory in 1934. Khachaturian is most famous for the Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia from his ballet Spartacus, and for the “Sabre Dance” from his ballet Gayane and the adagio from the same ballet, much used in films and TV series around the world.
Alongside Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich, Khachaturian is sometimes dubbed as one of the three “titans” of Soviet music.. Khachaturian’s works were often influenced by classical European music and Armenian folk music. (read more: Wikipedia, this is a great article, I really recommend it).
