Born in Baku, Kara Karayev was one of Dmitry Shostakovich’s most distinguished pupils. Karayev absorbed his teacher’s influence, binding it to his own distinctive use of native Azerbaijani folk melodies and harmonies to produce music in an eclectic range of genres. The Seven Beauties is the first full-length Azerbaijani ballet, and the suite heard here brims with an exotic array of appealing rhythms and melodies. The Path of Thunder uses elements of African and Afro-American music in its exploration of the theme of forbidden love in apartheidera South Africa. Karayev’s Symphony 8573122 No. 3 and other orchestral works can be heard on 8570720.

*****

“red-blooded performances.”

Gramophone Magazine

March 2014

“There's nothing to scare the horses, and any reader with a soft-spot for, say, the Khachaturian ballets should definitely investigate...the RPO under Dmitry Yablonsky sound as if they enjoyed making this colourful repertoire's acquaintance...Well worth checking out at this price point.”

MusicWeb International

23rd January 2014

“The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Dmitri Yablonsky is in cracking form in music that will appeal to all who like their music uncomplicatedly straightforward yet full blooded.”
