Notes and Editorial Reviews

Khachaturian's ballets contain some of the most famous classical music in the repertoire - from the exciting Sabre Dance to the romantically charged music from Spartacus, which was made famous by its use in the TV series 'The Onedin Line'. Neeme Järvi's performances are sonic spectaculars, bringing out all the vibrant colour and sumptuous tunes of this striking music.
