Clean and polished and absolutely flawless!!!!
Paul Vohra
This new recording has the best sound of the bunch, and in the Khachaturian, a new cadenza.
J. K. Davis MD
Nobody will be all that surprised if you end up keeping one or both.

Well, this disc is most welcome. It seems to be aimed at mainly presenting DGG's newest Armenian wunderkind fiddle player, Simonyan. But as it turns out, Simonyan and his fiddle are not the only stunning aspects of the disc. The youngest Jarvi in the apparent family conducting dynasty is also in extremely good form. The LSO again shows itself to be capable of quite telling, incisive playing, even in the orchestra accompaniments to two fiddle concertos.

I cannot quite recall if anybody has ever before released the Khachiturian and Samuel Barber fiddle concertos, together on one disc, or not. My guess is, not. They make an interesting coupling, although I still was not completely convinced about the pairing, even by the end of this estimable disc.

DGG has bothered to give all the musicians very good sound throughout. The LSO home base venue at St. Luke's augurs well for both concertos. So, no complaints ... well, maybe except ... this would be a demonstration multi-channel SACD disc, indeed.

Also no complaints about the instrument for which each composer wrote a concerto. This fiddle is a modern violin made by Christophe Landon, now played often by the soloist. It is a big tonal presence, though retains something of a modern edge as it etches intervals in a given phrase without deconstructing the momentum or the phrase, given whole.

Benchmark recordings of the Khachaturian concerto on my shelves have been David Oistrakh and Henryk Szyrng with Dorati. I have other performances, and always end up coming back to these two. I honestly can add Simonyan and KJarvi with LSO to the two high marks.
