An amazing piece of music – are your speakers good enough?


This recording of Khachaturian’s Symphony Number 3 is incredible – I first heard it on Radio 3 a few weeks back. Heavy brass, manic solo cathedral organ, and a very thrilling, loud ending. For me, as a piece it is let down by just one 20 second section of gooey sentimental film score-ishness at 10:08.

Does the bit where the solo organ hands over to strings at 6:14 remind you of the music you used to get in Gerry Anderson programmes e.g. Thunderbirds?

Great music to demonstrate the capabilities of speakers with – if they’re up to it.

You can hear it on Spotify:  Aram Khachaturian – Symphony No. 3, “Simfoniya-poema”
