A Tribute to Aram Khachaturian: part I
Our great Armenian Composer!
“If light, pure light were to be melted down in to sound,
the music it produced would be the music of Aram Khachaturian.”
Khachaturian (2003, 83 mins, Dir. Peter Rosen, Narrator Eric Bogosian; in Armenian, English, Russian)

Khachaturian Docujpg

An Exploration of a great artist creating in the darkness of a tragic era. A life full of contradictions: Was Khachaturian playing the fool for Stalinism, or composing music that cried out against evils? Was he a Soviet favorite musical son, or a sacrificial lamb? A loyal subject to the Kremlin, or secret dissident? An Armenian composer rooted to his heritage, or the New Socialist Man? Like most Soviet citizens, Khachaturian hid a complex private life behind a mask of Communist loyalty.
