Aram Khachaturian

- Aram Khachaturian -

Aram Ilich Khachaturian (June 6, 1903 - May 1, 1978) was a composer of classical music

Khachaturian was born in Tbilisi to an Armenian family (several of Khachaturian's works show the influence of Armenian folk music). He studied music in Moscow under Nikolay Myaskovsky[?] and Mikhail Gnesin[?].

Khachaturian's works include concertos for violin, cello and piano (the latter originally including an early part for the flexatone[?]), three symphonies and the ballets Spartacus[?] and Gayane[?], which includes what is probably his most famous movement, the "Sabre Dance".
