Re: Khachaturian's "Bell" symphony
I agree that Khachaturian's 3rd is far from contemptible. He knew what he was doing, and there's nothing else like it. Admittedly a taste for the grotesque helps one to appreciate it.
Kondrashin's is the best recording I've heard; shame about the sound breaking up at the climaxes.
