A Sunday with Khachaturian


Yesterday I had a chance to look at the commemorative CD-ROM of the Armenian conductor and composer Khachaturian. He was the composer of the film music of Spartacus and famous for his Sabre dance. He was born in 1903 and at the centenary of his birthday all kind of festivities were held and this CD-ROM made.

It is a CD-ROM with a menu stucture containing a photo album, timeline, principal works, videomaterials, biography and catalogue. The CD-ROM is full of photographs, contains videos and of course a lot of music. The CD-ROM does not contain any scores of the music pieces. So you cannot listen to a music piece and go to the music score; I guess this is a feature for tifosi and why would you like to read a music score on a screen?

I enjoyed a quiet Sunday with nice music.
