Aram Il'yich Khachaturian


 
Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978).
Born in Tbilisi, Georgia, to a poor Armenian family. In 1921 he travelled to Moscow and was admitted to the Gnessin Institute where he studied cello and entered composition class in 1925. It was here that the young Armenian developed a love for Orientalism reinforced by a passion for the music of his homeland.
He held important posts at the Composer's Union, which would later severely denounce some of his works as being 'formalist' music, along with those of Sergey Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich. These three composers became the so called 'titans' of Soviet music, enjoying world-wide reputation as leading composers of the 20th century.
