The Lost Chord: January 17 - Khach as Catch Can

Aram Khachaturian (on the right, with Prokofiev and Shostakovich) described his Symphony No. 2 as “a requiem of protest against war and violence.”  Its nickname, “The Bell,” alludes to a kind of alarm that opens and closes the work.  Leopold Stokowski will conduct the piece, in a rarely-heard recording from the late 1950s.  Then, to round out the hour, Nadia Reisenberg will perform Khachaturian’s “Toccata,” from a 1947 Carnegie Hall recital.  Sharpen up on Khachaturian, with music other than the “Sabre Dance,” this Sunday at 10 pm.
