    Default Aram Khatchaturian

    I am looking for a recording of Spartacus by the London Symphony Orchestra with Khatchaturian as conductor. Does anyone know where I can get that?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    It's not complete....But who cares...Listening to Spartacus for 1/2 an hour or three hours is the same...repetion and repetion...

    Khachaturian visited Eastman while I was there, and we did a whole week featuring his works...we did the Sym #2, and a lot of the ballet music, don't remember what else...I do remember that he wanted every loud, louder, more, loudest....two possible and concurrent reasons - he was truly getting hard of hearing, and...he had just come from Chicago, where the CSO had performed and recorded some of his works (I think the Stoki/CSO Sym #3 dates from this time)....and those guys really play loud!! So we were obliged to measure up....enhanced strings, 2bled winds, etc....it was fun....pianissimo attacks/entrances were not an issue!! !!
    I do enjoy Khachaturian's music, as a whole...good ballet stuff, derivative of Rimsky to a degree...colorful orchestration, has that Near Eastern, Oriental flavor...

    I am so disappointed to see a photo of Khachaturian. I used to perform his piano toccata in my teens and twenties, and I always pictured a young dashing strong jawed handsome man that wouldn't look out of place on the cover of a paperback romance novel.

    Probably quite a few years, and burgers ago.
