A Beautiful, Little-Known Work of Art
As much as it shames me to say it, I have never heard of the composer, Kara Karayev. After listening to his ballet scores, I don't think I'll ever be able to forget him.
Written in the Soviet Era, these ballets appear drenched in the Soviet ideals and story lines. The music itself is beautiful, reminiscent of Khachaturian, in my opinion. It's as if Karayev took the lyrical Prokofievian beauty of music and infused it with Azerbaijani folk melody. The result is an ear-catching, unique addition to the art of ballet. The CD is in very good quality, and the accompanying booklet provides a large amount of information about the little-known composer, as well as the stories of his ballets.
I recommend this to the ballet music collector, something exquisite and little-known.more....
