ARAM KHACHATURIAN (1903-1978): Cello Concerto in E Minor, Concerto-Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra.
Catalogue Number: 03L087
Description: This completes Naxos' series of couplings of Khachaturian's concertos and Concerto-Rhapsodies for the same instrument. The concerto (1946) is rather well-known by now, the Rhapsody (1963) less so - a 24-minute, single-movement (of course) piece with all the virtuosity and exotic color of its earlier sibling. Dmitry Yablonsky (cello), Moscow City Symphony Orchestra; Maxim Fedotov.
