Arnold and List,
Which recording? I didn't know that ANY were available in the U.S. I have a
copy of one done with the Yerevan State Academic Ballet and Opera Theatre
conducted by Aram Katanya. Is that the one you mean? It's a good bet that
this is the only game in town.
As will many of these Slavic recordings, the sound isn't all that great - and
the singers tend to have a very sharp edge to their voices - but the music
comes through quite well, and is surprisingly melodic and pleasant. I would
be very surprised if there is ANY other recording available.
Also, you are right to assume that ANUSH is a very different kettle of fish.
By the way, it would have been a lot easier to look this up if you had
mentioned the composer's name (Chukhajian).
