Notes & Reviews:

Born in Tbilisi, Georgia, Khachaturian's earliest musical influences were the folk music of Georgia and of his ancestral homeland, Armenia. Gayaneh (1942) tapped into this passion for his Armenian heritage. Set on a collective farm, its story is concerned with the triumph of love and loyalty to the Motherland over treason - themes that would keep Stalin happy. Spartacus (1956) took the famous story of the Greek slave turned gladiator and his defeat of the Roman general Crassus as its basis.

Gramophone Magazine
The Bolshoi orchestra are obviously completely at home in this repertoire, and Svetlanov's ear for orchestral detail is as sure as ever. How beautifully he handles the tapering down at the end of the 'Dance of the Nymphs' (from Spartacas), while the opening of the 'Dance of the Young Girls of Gade`s' brings a slow, subtle crescendo... The famous 'Adagio of Spar tacus and Phr ygia' has never sounded more touchingly refined on record and the climax does not disappoint. In Gayaneh there is a beguilingly sinuous sophistication in 'Ayesha's dance', and the 'Lullaby' and 'Gayeneh's Adagio' are beautifully played, creating much delicacy of texture.
