Notes & Reviews:

Along with Shostakovich's Sixth and Prokofiev's Fifth, Khachaturian's Symphony No. 2 - composed in the years of the Great Patriotic War - was inspired with genuine humanism and faith in the victory. The music expresses the whole gamut of emotions that raged in the people's hearts: wrath, indignation, sorrow, and solemn lyricism that are replaced with a festive, life-asserting mood in the finale.

This CD also includes fragments from Aram Khachaturian's ballet Gayane, and a famous Adagio from the ballet Spartacus. The recording was produced by Melodiya and conducted by the maestro himself. The author's performance is what makes this recording especially valuable!
