Khachaturian, Aram - Sonata-Monologue for Violin Solo - Library of Russian-Soviet Music

Item# 0145 010

Shar: $15.99Sale: $14.39

Out of Stock

  • Instrumentation: Violin
  • Composer: Khachaturian
Of Khachaturian's works that involve the violin, the Violin Concerto is certainly the best-known and the most frequently played. Most people (even many violinists) don't even know he wrote anything else for violin, but this Sonata-Monologue for solo violin is an interesting piece, very characteristic of Khachaturian, and best suited to advanced players with a full range of techniques at their disposal. This edition is published by Associated Music Publishers, Inc., and distributed by Hal Leonard. Difficulty: A5

Khachaturian, Aram - Concerto for Violin and Piano - edited by David Oistrakh - International Music Co.

  • Instrumentation: Violin & Piano
  • Composer: Khachaturian
  • Publisher: International
Composed in 1940 for violinist David Oistrakh, Aram Khachaturian's Violin Concerto in d minor is notable for the insistent, repetitive rhythmic motive of its opening theme, in which the violin is "announced" by a commanding statement from the orchestra. The darkly mysterious second movement features a lengthy orchestral introduction before giving way to the sultry, almost plaintive voice of the violin. Khachaturian's Armenian heritage imbues the boisterous final movement with spirit and folk-inspired motives. Though the composer originally wrote a cadenza to be played in the first movement, Oistrakh preferred to write his own, which is the more oft-played of the two today. More recently, this Violin Concerto has been adopted by flautists, through a composer-sanctioned flute transcription by Jean-Pierre Rampal. This edition for violin with piano reduction is edited by David Oistrakh. Published by the International Music Company. Difficulty: A6

Khachaturian, Aram - Sabre Dance from "Gayaneh" - Violin and Piano - transcribed by Jascha Heifetz - Edition Sikorski

Item# 1970 110

Shar: $13.95Sale: $12.56

  • Instrumentation: Violin & Piano
  • Composer: Khachaturian
Today, the Sabre Dance is almost certainly Aram Khachaturian's most famous work, featured frequently in popular media, from TV shows like The Simpsons to sporting event broadcasts. Originally, it was a movement from Khachaturian's ballet Gayane, in which Armenian dancers performed a dizzying routine with swords. The energy of the dance has made it a popular concert piece, both in its original iteration for orchestra, and in the many, often virtuosic, arrangements that have been made for other instruments. This edition for violin and piano is transcribed by Jascha Heifetz. Published by Edition Sikorski. Difficulty: A6

Khachaturian, Aram - Sonata for Viola Solo - Library of Russian-Soviet Music

Item# 2102 010

Shar: $14.95Sale: $13.46

Out of Stock

  • Instrumentation: Viola
  • Composer: Khachaturian
The Sonata for Solo Viola of Aram Khachaturian was a late work for the composer - perhaps one of the last he ever composed. Written in 1976, just two years before Khachaturian's death, it came two years after the publication of another solo string work, the Sonata for Solo Cello. Difficult and dark, the Sonata for Solo Viola is not a well-known work, even among violists, but is best suited toward advanced players with a good command of the instrument. This edition is published by Edition Sikorski. Difficulty: ASTA grade 5

Khachaturian, Aram - Trio for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano - Edition Sikorski

Item# 5806 110

Shar: $35.00Sale: $31.50

In Stock

  • Composer: Khachaturian
  • Publisher: G. Schirmer
Though he was prolific enough in other categories (film music, for example), Aram Khachaturian only wrote two pieces of chamber music: a string quartet (1931), and this Trio for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano, composed in 1932. Khachaturian's interest in the folk music of Armenia can be heard in the Eastern flavors of the Trio's harmonic language. This edition is published by Edition Sikorski. Difficulty: A6
