Re: Khachaturian's "Bell" symphony
Jeffrey - as it happens just today I was listening to Kondrashin's version of Khachaturian's 3rd Symphony - quite the best version I think because it embraces the gaudy garishness of the piece most wholeheartedly. I was pondering that this was a perfect "Proms" piece - not a single Khachaturian Symphony has been played at the Proms (in a year we are being given a "Strictly Come Dancing" Prom mind). I think they are rather wonderful and well worth hearing.
