The Naxos series devoted to the orchestral music of Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978) continues with two pieces that both feature the cello.

The Cello Concerto (1946) is the most resourceful and forward-looking of his works from this period, qualities which did not endear it to the authorities at a difficult time for Soviet musicians, while the Concert-Rhapsody (1963) pursues a personal approach to the combining of soloist and orchestra that is highly convincing on its own terms.

His Violin Concerto and Concert-Rhapsody for Violin are available on 8570988

Aram Il'yich Khachaturian: Concerto-Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra

Concerto-Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra

Gramophone Magazine

August 2010

“Yablonsky serves the work well. His unforced tone has a natural presence and penetration, and he's able to rise, seemingly with little effort, to an impressive, full intensity at climactic moments...The orchestra plays the quicker music with verve, and in the score's darker episodes...creates a powerful, sombre atmosphere.”
