Notes & Reviews:

"Finally we get the Khachaturian on CD--a wonderful recording, never surpassed. Finally we get the Reiner 'Nevsky' in outstanding sound...The conducting is thrilling, and the chorus can be understood! They sing in English...Reiner not only builds climaxes but also holds tension remarkably well, so you are on the edge of your seat sometimes...This one you have to have: the Reiner 'Nevsky' finally sounding great and the absolutely perfect Khachaturian..." -Vroon, ARG
