Woof, woof, everyone! We hope your’re having a great day. I know, I know, we have been off but we’re back to bring you the special piece of music of today. Let’s enjoy one of the most renowned masters in Russian music. If you don’t kown his name, we are sure you have listened these famous pieces before.

Sabre Dance is the most known piece of Katachaturian, thanks to films and TV but… give him a change to his Masquerade Suite, a masterpiece of… post-romanticism? 20 minutes of feelings and, of course, great music.

Born in Tiflis (Georgia) to a poor Armenian family from Nakhichevan (Azerbaijan), Khachaturian moved to Moscow at the age of 19. He graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1934. Khachaturian is 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.

We hope you enjoy these two pieces.


Without music, life would be a mistake.

Friedrich Nietzsche
