Modern Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978) absorbed his native folk music and that of Georgia and Azerbaijan. He was inclined toward music but didn't really start learning it until going to school in Moscow, completing his studies in 1933. He wrote many powerful pieces, all reflecting his heritage; most noted is the colorful "Saber Dance" from the ballet Gayane.
