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.
'An excellent introduction to a comparative rarity in the composer's output.' MusicWeb international on 8.570988
