Name that old classical piece?

Help please for identifying this Russian (I think) classical music piece from a 1960s/1970s LP record. Details inside.

Here is the sample showing the intro. Sorry, 35 seconds is all I have, but I remember it was much longer.

The content is from an LP record from about 1970, probably a stereo system demo record. It was among some other tracks that positively identify from this album (big pic of back sleeve), however I plugged various tracks into YouTube, listened to various passages, and it doesn't sound like any of them. So I can't be 100% sure. Also no match on Soundhound.

Would love to find out which piece this is.

It's the Kachaturian, "Armenian Dance #2". It's the first track here as well.

I also think it is Aram Khatchadourian, best known for Sabre Dance, which you've heard in a million commercials. Note that that surname (it means cross bearer) has a lot of ways to be spelled when you're searching.
