KHACHATURIAN: A film about one composer's life and music during the great Soviet experiment
The KUHN FOUNDATION presents a PETER ROSEN PRODUCTION
Winner - Best Documentary Award at the Hollywood Film Festival in Los Angeles
Peter Rosen's film is a grand tribute to the great Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978) in his centennial year and a daring, yet moving study of his complex life under Stalin's tyranny. The film is about the life of a composer creating in the darkness of a tragic era. Like most Soviet citizens, Khachaturian hid a complex private life behind a mask of Communist loyalty.
Narrated by Eric Bogosian. Added features include Mstislav Rostropovich in a performance of the Concerto-Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra, conducted by the composer.
