Notes and Editorial Reviews

Weinberg’s symphonies are recognised today as a substantial continuation of the Russian tradition. His Twelfth Symphony, written in the style and spirit of Shostakovich, is a response to the death in August 1975 of his great friend and supporter of 32 years. With its subtle stylistic allusions to Shostakovich, this is the longest and most wide-ranging of Weinberg’s purely orchestral symphonies. This recording has been prepared utilising the composer’s hand written materials and markings. One of only two surviving ballet scores, The Golden Key is a compelling satire, extending a lineage which includes Prokofiev and Stravinsky. The St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Lande have also recorded Weinberg’s Nineteenth (8.572752) Read more and Sixth symphonies (8.572779). Read less

 Time for Weinberg March 29, 2014 By Due Fuss See All My Reviews "Another great release by Naxos in its library mode, which aims to bring to light the otherwise obscured name of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, a formidable Russian composer, who was a great friend to Shostakovich. Weinberg's music is not wholly original, but is nonetheless compelling and well worth a listen. This will sit nicely on my shelf in between the other Naxos Weinberg releases." Report Abuse
