Yes, it is, Max . It's probably "Gayaneh Ballet Suite" by Aram Khachaturyan, but I'm not sure. All I can say is that Stanley Kubrick also used this very same motive in 2001:A Space Oddysey (the scenes when camera shows the Discovery outer space), if we're thinking on the same motive . And it was some twenty years before Aliens was released!
