Programme Note

Reflecting colorful orchestration techniques and the influence of native Armenian classical traditions, Spartacus was one Khachaturian's hugely successful ballets (along with Gayane). This exciting and powerful sequence from the ballet is adapted beautifully for the concert stage by Leslie Hicken. An energetic rhythmic pulse is exhibited throughout, capped by a stunning and dramatic finish that will take the audience's breath away!
