    Nostalgia... ...I so soooo love it... One of my favourite violin concertos ever.<3
    Aram Khachaturian - "Violin concerto in D minor".
    David Oistrakh, violin.
    Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra.
    Conductor - Aram Khachaturian(!)
    1965.
    I. Allegro con fermezza (00.00)
    II. Andante sostenuto (14.56)
    III. Allegro vivace (27.13)



    With those dorian and lydian music modes, inherent to armenian music, one can fall in love with Khachaturian's music forever.:smitten:
    The quality is great, and all the records i'd heard were of good quality as well. The music record industry was very powerful and highly developed in Soviet Union, but until 2000 very few knew about it. It wasn't available to average people: when i was studying at the Conservatoire, one boy gave me an old(!) compact disc with Rachmaninov's opera. It was written that it had been recorded in 1961!!! I couldn't believe my eyes at first, but the pathetic quality of annotation paper left no doubt. It was released for US consumers by our main brand "Melodia", but it wasn't available to soviet people, of course. I can imagine, how shocked they would have been if they saw a digital device for playing music. Even i was shocked to hold this piece of unknown history in my own hands!:dizzy: Btw, though the disc was as heavy as hell, it was playing very well (and even didn't break my music center, hehehe:p). Though officially Phillips started(!) working on ALP only in 1970, and released (officially!) a CD player only in 1982, it was a living miracle existing secretly (as everything technologically sophisticated in SUo_O)
    And when i'm listening to Khachaturian, i always regret that i quit studying armenian. Not long ago i decided that when i'm able to go to Abkhazia on my own, i'll go to my beloved town New Athos and live in armenian community "Armyanskaya schel'" ("armenian cleft" [in the rock]). Moreover, i know the woman Amalia Andrejanovna, who'd invited me to her house and fed me with her pancakes(!). She said i can live at her place, and the rental fee is more than appropriate.:yes: And it's not far (from Armyanskaya schel') to my acquaintances in the village Vesjolovka ("The cheerful one"),- just 22 miles, haha (i went there on foot). The mountains and valleys views over there could overwhelm anybody and make fall in love with Caucasus. The last time i'd been at their place, they'd given me аn armenian-russian phrasebook as a gift(!). They used it when they learned russian after they'd fled from the horrible earthquake in Yerevan in 1985. The moutainers are very sincere and they are happy when you greet them in their language and dialect, and then they will give you much gifts and food(!),- just because they are amazing people.:ma:

    ^^^^ Usually at 10 PM on Saturdays it's Afropop Worldwide on public radio, but tonight seems to be a special edition of The World Cafe... featuring everything Aretha... lesser-known songs (my favorite kind!), interviews, etc....

    Music by Mané Hakobyan, "Aprelu April" ("April for living").
    (Dedicated to Armenian Genocide - the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians, mostly citizens within the Ottoman Empire. It started on April 24, 1915).



    "A fresh wound, just one century old one
    Songs are still alive from my homesickness
    Home, dreaming of you sleepless
    Home calls me back in my dreams.

    Let the beg and cry heard from my homeland
    Be the brutal hangman for your guilty soul
    Death, you’ve defeated me for a while
    But my destiny has been to be alive.

    refrain
    My heart was broken by a sword, but I survived due to love
    No garden is remained, but new plants have been grown
    No monastery can be found, but I still pray for you
    My Lord, deliver me and my nation from evil.
    Forever.

    The ancient breath of my land is in my blood,
    I will still carry the blossomed old cross
    We live and we will flourish,
    As the life order for Armenians is to be alive.

    refrain
    My heart was broken by a sword, but I survived due to love
    No garden is remained, but new plants have been grown
    No monastery can be found, but I still pray for you
    My Lord, deliver me and my nation from evil
    Forever.

    My soul won’t die, since my belief guides me
    My holly prayer
    From my native land I will be born again
    A drop of Armenian spring
    April for living.

    refrain
    My heart was broken by a sword, but I survived due to love
    No garden is remained, but new plants have been grown
    No monastery can be found, but I still pray for you
    My Lord, deliver me and my nation from evil
    Forever, forever, forever, forever, forever".

    Kim Wilde - Cambodia. This video is the best version on Youtube, I think.

    Nice voice, sounds like she has a cold :p It's got a nice 80s nostalgia feel to it, makes me think of American war movies from that era.
