Aram Khachaturian - Piano Concerto - II Anadante con anima

Aram Khachaturian's Piano Concerto in D-flat major, Op. 38, was composed in 1936. It was his first work to bring him recognition in the West, and it immediately entered the repertoire of many notable pianists.

The Piano Concerto was the first of three concertos Khachaturian wrote for the individual members of a renowned Soviet piano trio that performed together from 1941 until 1963. The others were: the Violin Concerto for David Oistrakh (1940); and the Cello Concerto for Sviatoslav Knushevitsky (1946).

The Piano Concerto in D-flat was written for Lev Oborin, who premiered it in Moscow on 12 July 1937, with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra under L. Shteinberg.[1] It received its American debut on 14 March 1942, by Maro Ajemian at the Juilliard School in New York, conducted by Albert Stoessel.[2]

The piece is in three movements: the first movement, Allegro ma non troppo e maestoso, makes extensive use of the three-note theme of F, B-double-flat, and A-flat. The second movement, Andante con anima, is one of the few major classical pieces to make use of a flexatone. The third movement, Allegro brillante, caps the piece in an exciting manner.

The concerto was first recorded in 1946, by William Kapell with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Serge Koussevitzky. The recording became a jukebox favourite, and Kapell was so associated with the work that he was often called "Khachaturian Kapell". It has also been recorded by such pianists as its creator Lev Oborin, Moura Lympany, Peter Katin, Boris Berezovsky, Mindru Katz, Dora Serviarian Kuhn, Constantine Orbelian, Alicia de Larrocha, Leonard Pennario and Alberto Portugheis.[1]
