Armenia’s greatest composer Aram Khachaturian received both acclaim and criticism from the Soviet regime, including the USSR State Prize for his three Concerto-Rhapsodies. “A concerto is music with chandeliers burning bright; a rhapsody is music with chandeliers dimmed, and the Concerto-Rhapsodies are both”, he explained.

The Violin Concerto’s passionately heroic first movement and poignant Andante sostenuto lead to a virtuosic, dancing finale.

Both works on this disc brim with the full-blooded lyricism of his much-loved ballet Spartacus, Suites Nos. 1–3 of which are available on 8550801.

***

“It's an immensely attractive work, full of his trademark Armenian folk flourishes, and the swaying, hypnotic Andante is notably beautiful.”

MusicWeb International

“An excellent introduction to a comparative rarity in the composer’s output.”
