Armenian Composer Aram Khachaturian monument
The monument to Aram Ilyich Khachaturian appeared in Moscow in 2006 in a small cozy square of Bryusov Lane next to the house in which he lived. The bronze sculpture of an outstanding composer and conductor stands on a granite slab. In the hands of the composer are notes, and behind the back are musical instruments: organ, cello and piano. The authors of the monument are the sculptor Georgy Frangulyan and the architect Igor Voskresensky.
The prominent composer Aram Khachaturian was from a small Georgian village, but since 19 years lived in Moscow, and worked in the Moscow Conservatory. In fact, the creation of the monument, financed by the Armenian municipality, became the gift donated to Moscow in the year of Armenia in Russia.

It is perfectly said: “Happiness is when you are understood.” That’s the happiness of Aram Ilyich Khachaturian, understood and loved not only in his native Armenia, not only in our multinational country, but in other countries of the world. The flowering of his work coincided with the heyday of socialist Armenia. Its bright sun, blue sky, lilac mountains, orange valleys, its beautiful music were for him the main teachers and inspirers. He went through a great school – the Moscow Conservatory with an outstanding Soviet composer, a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolai Yakovlevich Myaskovsky.
Khachaturian’s talent has acquired scope, courage, and the highest professionalism. And one after another began to appear works that entered forever the golden fund of Soviet music.
