The Piano Concerto is a beautiful work of mass appeal, probably why it and other works by this composer are not more highly regarded. This disfavor is not so much because the Concerto has less depth than, say, a Prokofiev piano concerto, but that its musical ideas are more easily appreciated by the public who are perceived by many as a less discerning crowd of music lovers. Regardless of the reasons for relative disfavor, one must admit that AK could write catchier tunes than most. This is a dramatic, lyrical, and sensitive reading of the Khachaturian Piano Concerto. Constantine Orbelian is a top notch keyboard player and instead of a lightning pyrotechnical display, he is more relaxed and dramatic. The piano sound for this Chandos recording is also resonant and reverberant.

The Khachaturian piano concerto is a masterpiece of the concerto literature. I've loved it all my life but have never heard it performed in concert. It was composed for Lev Oborin, a member of a glorious piano trio of the Soviet era and is the work that made the composer famous in the west. Khachaturian also wrote concerti for David Oistrakh (in 1940) and Sviatoslav Knushevitsky (in 1946), the violinist and cellist of the celebrated trio. There are several excellent performances here
