Notes & Reviews:
Decca presents six new titles in the VIRTUOSO series. With stellar recordings, famous artists, strong visuals, innovative booklet notes and best-selling composers, all offered at an excellent price, the Virtuoso series makes serious classical music approachable without compromise. This album includes Khachaturian's ballet Spartacus, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Stanley Black.
The performances by the LSO are fresh and vigorous, the sound has plenty of colour and projection and Stanley Black's pacing is well judged.
