sawyl: (A self portrait)
A current earworm in the shape of Aram Khachaturian's Waltz from his Masquerade Suite. This is Kirill Kondrashin's particularly fine take on it from 1958: he gets the tempo just right and his change in dynamics before the first entry of the theme works particularly well.


It's interesting to compare Kondrashin's take on the piece with Stanley Black's version with the LSO, where the opening phrases are much less distinct and the tempo slightly faster...
