Notes & Reviews:

Armenia's greatest composer Aram Khachaturian received both acclaim and criticism from the Soviet regime, including the USSR State Prize for his three 'Concerto-Rhapsodies'. "A concerto is music with chandeliers burning bright; a rhapsody is music with chandeliers dimmed, and the 'Concerto-Rhapsodies' are both", he explained. The Violin Concerto's passionately heroic first movement and poignant 'Andante sostenuto' lead to a virtuosic, dancing finale. Both works on this disc brim with the full-blooded lyricism of his much-loved ballet 'Spartacus', Suites Nos. 1–3 of which are available on NXS 8550801.
