By the early 1940s, the works of Soviet composers, were changing. The satirical overtones and acerbity that, had characterised much of their output, in the twenties to mid-thirties, gave way to more traditionally-inspired forms, harking back to the nineteenth-century romantic Russian era. Amongst this new wave of composers, getting a fair hearing, was Aram Khachaturian, from Armenia.
