Khatutarian Piano Concerto in Db Minor
on: June 27, 2004, 01:42:49 AM
Hey guys, have any of you heard this concerto by Khatutiarian (probably a majority of you may have), but check it out though.  It might be uneasy to get a hold of the musicallity of it, but try not to fight how the piano communicates with the orchaestra, instead focusing on how it mimics certain passages.  I don't really know how popular this concerto is, but it's certainly worth a listen to, despite it lacking in the huge virtuoso dept, it plays more like a Brahms with big themes and reoccuring motifs I find, especially how the end of the 3rd Movement finds it's way back to the main exposition.  
Give it a go!
