CLASSICAL OPUS no.58

Aram Khachaturian: “Sabre Dance”

アラム ハチャトゥリアン: 「セイバーダンス」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 2 minutes

This evidently begs for a speed ticket.  It is convulsive, manic, almost psychotic and yet tantalizingly infectious, not least in its use of marimbaphones.  How fitting for the Transcaucasian exoticism of hardy, unpredictable mountain dwellers, softened here somewhat by Seiji Ozawa’s exceptionally graceful baton.  Few remember that this bagatelle originates from the final act of a ballet entitled “Gayane”.

A REFLECTION

Listen,

if stars are lit

it means – there is someone who needs it.

It means – someone wants them to be,

that someone deems those specks of spit

magnificent.

 

Vladimir Mayakovsky: “Listen”
