Aegina and Bacchanalia
Aram Khachaturian/trans. Hicken
- G. Schirmer, Inc.
Reflecting colorful orchestration techniques and the influence of native Armenian classical traditions, Spartacus was one of Khachaturian's hugely successful ballets. This exciting and powerful sequence from the ballet is adapted beautifully for the concert stage. An energetic rhythmic pulse is exhibited throughout, capped by a stunning and dramatic finish.
