Ever Upwards, Ever Outwards: José Serebrier talks to Jeremy Siepmann

KHACHATURIAN, A.I.: Violin Concerto / Concerto-Rhapsody for Violin and Orchestra (Koeckert, Royal Philharmonic, Serebrier)

Armenia’s greatest composer Aram Khachaturian received both acclaim and criticism from the Soviet regime, including the USSR State Prize for his three Concerto-Rhapsodies. “A concerto is music with chandeliers burning bright; a rhapsody is music with chandeliers dimmed, and the Concerto-Rhapsodies are both”, he explained. The Violin Concerto’s passionately heroic first movement and poignant Andante sostenuto lead to a virtuosic, dancing finale. Both works on this disc brim with the full-blooded lyricism of his much-loved ballet Spartacus, Suites Nos. 1–3 of which are available on 8.550801.
