He is 'Spartacus'

I have been wanting to buy a CD of Khachaturian's "Spartacus" ballet since hearing it on the local classical radio station. But since all music purchases are off until this theology grad student gets a summer job, I will content myself with this video of Matthew Cameron's lovely piano transcription of the ballet's Adagio, performed on CUNY-TV.

If you would like to hear more, Cameron's version is not commercially available, but many versions of the ballet are available on Amazon.com, including one by the Vienna Philharmonic.

All commissions on Amazon purchases made through this blog go toward helping pregnant women who suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness. For details, click here.
