Ένας ακόμα από τους σημαντικούς συνθέτες της σοβιετικής περιόδου, ο Ρωσο-Αρμένιος Aram Khachaturian, διακρίθηκε κυρίως για τα μπαλέτα του Spartacus και Gayane. Ακούμε ένα απόσπασμα από τη σουίτα που αντλήθηκε απ’ το δεύτερο. Aysheh’s Awakening And Dance, από την Φιλαρμονική της Βιέννης υπό τη διεύθυνση του ίδιου του συνθέτη.

Another important composer of the Soviet era, the Russian-Armenian Aram Khachaturian, was distinguished mainly for the ballets Spartacus and Gayane. We hear an excerpt from the suite derived from the second one.
Aysheh’s Awakening And Dance, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the composer himself.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
