Notes and Editorial Reviews

Aram Khachaturian’s music is a chronicle of his time and his motherland; it is often an enthusiastic tale of the life of his country. Symphony No. 1 (1934), dedicated to the 15th anniversary of Soviet Armenia, was the composer’s diploma thesis. The Concerto-Rhapsody for cello and orchestra was written in a burst of inspiration in a free developing form similar to Chausson’s Poème and Ravel’s Tzigane for violin. The composer found a structure that connected the principle of rhapsodic development of music based on a free flight of fantasy with elements of sonata form that add a clear logic of symphonic thinking to the whole work. - Melodiya Aram Khachaturian’s music is a chronicle of his time and his motherland; it is often an enthusiastic tale of the life of his country.
