Dmitry Yablonsky (cello)

Moscow City Symphony Orchestra, Maxim Fedotov

The Naxos series devoted to the orchestral music of Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978) continues with two pieces that both feature the cello.

The Cello Concerto (1946) is the most resourceful and forward-looking of his works from this period, qualities which did not endear it to the authorities at a difficult time for Soviet musicians, while the Concert-Rhapsody (1963) pursues a personal approach to the combining of soloist and orchestra that is highly convincing on its own terms.

His Violin Concerto and Concert-Rhapsody for Violin are available on 8570988
