    I love Gayaneh. It's a gem from soviet Russia ballet school and there's a big shame that not frequently performed today.

    I think Gayaneh is his best ballet, far better than Spartacus. But that's probably a matter of taste :-)

    I saw it performed by RLPO conducted by Vasily Petrenko at Leeds Town Hall last year. Was amazing. When they performed the Sabre Dance, I felt like I was in the middle of the music. The encore couldn't have been more fitting either! Masquerade Suite! Took me a while to get over that concert.

    Sounds really amazing indeed.

    It does indeed sound marvelous. I'm not keen on ballet myself but I'd love to see a production of Gayaneh some time. The music is marvelous from start to finish. Khachaturian is just so grossly underappreciated.

    Hear hear. Khachaturian deserves far more respect and appreciation than he gets, in just about all his music genres.
    There may come a time when Youtube won't let us do this...

    It is absolutely necessary to listen to the integral version (in Naxos for example), not only the "Suite" that is drawn.
