Aram Khachaturian
Birth: Jun. 6, 1903
Death: May 1, 1978

Composer. He was educated at the Gnesin School and the Moscow Conservatory. Together with Prokofiev and Shostakovich he was one of the most popular and successful composers of the Soviet period. His unique musical idiom was marked by his Armenian heritage. His scores are noted for their sensuous, singing melodic writing, colorful orchestration, and elemental rhythmic drive. Known in the West chiefly as the composer of instrumental concerti and the vivid scores for the ballets Gayaneh and Spartacus (the Spartacus including the brilliant 'Sabre Dance'), he also encompassed symphonies and other works for orchestra, film and theater music, works for band, chamber music, and a large number of patriotic and popular songs. (bio by: Jelena)

Thank you for composing the brilliant, energetic Sabre Dance! It was shown in a Sally Field/Tom Hanks film Punchline to great effect!

Your Adagio of Spartacus and Phyrigia was one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.
