"Sabre Dance"

The Sabre Dance is a movement in the final act of Aram Khachaturian's ballet Gayane. It evokes a whirling war dance in a Kurdish dance, where the dancers display their skill with sabres (swords). Due to its exceptionally exciting rhythm, the Sabre Dance established a place for itself in common concert practice, leading also to various adaptations in popular music.
