This really could have been a collectors item! Music from the Caucasus, performed by an Armenian Orchestra, led by a renowned ethnic-Armenian conductor from Iran. Who better to present these folk-inspired works from this ancient crossroads? Loris Tjeknavorian may not be a household name, but he has built a very successful worldwide career over several decades in both the USSR/Russia and the West. The Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra may not display the virtuosity of the world's finest, but they are committed musicians who play superbly. Both conductor and orchestra do their jobs well, presenting these works with an intensity that is fitting for the idiom. Yes, there is a bit of rawness here and there but it adds to the mystique of these works from a part of the world so long forgotten by the West and now once more in the headlines. The performers are unfortunately let down by the recording crew: the sound quality is not good. It is congested, but that is tolerable. What is intolerable is the excessive distortion. It gets off to a decent start in Gayaneh with even the Sabre Dance sounding reasonably clear. But in Lezghinka the sound is clearly too closely miked as the energetic rhythms beat the microphones into a pulp. The shorter, more delicate pieces squeak through unscathed. But if a piece contains louder, more boisterous passages, such as Lezghinka, the climax to the Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia, the Victory of Spartacus, and others, rest assured the sound falls apart. Again, Sabre Dance is the exception. Unfortunate! I give it three stars instead of one or two in acknowledgement of the excellent performances. ByMatteoD
