The Masquerade Waltz by Aram Khachaturyan

>> Tuesday, October 13, 2009

You don't even know how hard I worked to find this one!  When I was a teenager I used to listen to this waltz on the stereo all the time, but I couldn't remember it's name or who composed it.  Then I remembered that out in the garage I had the collection of  33 LP's that it was on, stored in a box.  So I dug through and I found it!  This has always been one of my very favorites, so today I'm featuring it in honor of the 2nd Annual Willow Manor Ball.

Hi Lynette,

Coincidentally, this was on the radio on Saturday afternoon and it struck me as being perfect for the Manor Ball! Glad you managed to find it.

What an excellent choice of waltz.
Yes, yes, the ball is such fun, isn't it!

Entirely worth the effort!

When I was sixteen I borrowed an LP from the library. A more erudite friend laughed at the way I pronounced the composer's name. I played it over and over and assumed in my naive way that it was a famous piece and that one day I could afford to buy it. I have never heard it since and many times I have hummed the tunes to record store managers to no avail. Almost every day I hope I will hear it again on the radio. What a wonderful collection you have made. I wish I could click on "Play all" as on Youtube.
