Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Besides his ever-popular ballet Spartacus (Suites Nos. 1 - 3 are on Naxos 8.550801), Khachaturian also wrote other stage music, including a splendid score for Boris Lavrenyov's play about the great Russian author Mikhail Lermontov. The composer described his powerful Second Symphony, written during the final years of World War II, as 'a requiem of wrath, a requiem of protest against war and violence'. At crucial junctures, three tubular bells toll, giving the symphony its memorable subtitle.
