Format: Audio CD
The Scene: Reception Desk at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter: "And you, sir, what is your name?"
Kondrashin: "Kondrashin. I was a conductor."
St. Peter: "Are you the same conductor who made that wonderful record of Rimsky-Korsakoff, Kabalevsky, Khachaturian and Tchaikovsky for RCA back in 1958?"
Kondrashin: "Yes, I suppose I am."
St. Peter: "It's a pleasure to meet you, sir! Many folks up here speak highly of your work. Several of them have even told me that YOU are directly responsible for their being here."
Kondrashin: "How can that be?"
St. Peter: "Well, they said that after listening to your record, they died and went to Heaven. Please come in!"
Listen to this record ..... if you dare!

This has always been one of my favorite records. The moment I first heard it (when I was about 7 years old) I loved it. And what is there not to love? Very attractive music conducted with gusto, the RCA Orchestra is sumptuous, and the recording quality spectacular. Why, then, have RCA not yet issued this on SACD? If there ever was a recording made for SACD, this is it. Hurry up RCA! (And where is Hovhaness's Mysterious Mountain?)

This is a rare gem that many people will probably miss. If you listen to your local classical radio station, you might actually catch this really great piece by Khachaturian. All the movements have been done with gusto and enthusiasm. It will definitely get your attention with its rich melodies. I would characterize it as almost Tchaikovsky with romantic influences.
The CD leaflet is quite informative to describe the life of Khachaturian in writing the Masquerade Suite. So, it is worth the price of the CD since it provides more information about a relatively obscure composer. I think the music really got my attention and interested in learning about where Khachaturian got his influence.
The other pieces are a mixed bag and probably depends on what your tastes are. I personally found Kabalevsky not to be quite memorable since there are no distinct theme. It's a different style which takes time to appreciate. To me, it sounds very modern like Aaron Copland which doesn't appeal to me. It is really a progression from romatic to modern music.
Tchaikovsky is much more like what you are used to from him. Expect lush and some beautiful tunes. It is not played often so you will not be humming this immediately. So, you just have to listen to it a while. It is pretty slow with highs and lows which means more patience to detail.
Rimsky-Korsakov is more exciting and probably what you expect in this CD. This probably would make sense if the entire CD would focus on strong movements like this one. I guess that is the drawback when a CD album comes out. You are sure to really want to hear one piece but the others are not up to par. However, even popular CDs you buy is a mixed bag so this is not unlike in this regards. So, I would recommend listening to the samples and then decide to buy it. You will love Khachaturian but probably won't feel the same about the others.
