Product Description

Product Description

Mieczysaw Weinberg's 26 symphonies are seen today as a substantial continuation of the Russian tradition. Symphony No. 19 marks Bright May' as the month in which the Great Patriotic War came to an end, but expressed with ominous apprehension as well as celebration. The Banners of Peace subsumes traditional and revolutionary songs to create an extrovert work which avoids the bombast of propaganda. Gramophone has acclaimed the understanding and fervour' of Vladimir Lande's greatly superior' conducting of Weinberg's Symphony No. 6 (8.572779).

The St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra was established in 1967 and until 1985 was known as the Orchestra of Ancient and Modern Music. Renowned soloists and conductors, including Yuri Temirkanov, Mariss Jansons, Svyatoslav Richter, and many others, have performed with the orchestra. In 2008, the American Vladimir Lande became the orchestra's principal guest conductor. He conducted the opening concert of St Petersburg's White Nights Festival in summer 2004. Since then, he has led notable orchestras in the United States, conducted the National Gallery Chamber Orchestra on an American tour, and served as conductor of the 64th American Music Festival.

Format: Audio CD
New recordings of Weinberg's music are now, thankfully, a regular event. This new recording presents two works of exceptional quality. Don't be put off by the 'Party Line' tags of these works, Weinberg was never truly an `Establishment' composer in the Soviet Union and, as usual with this composer, there are moments of emotional ambiguity. Wonderful themes, masterly development and highly atmospheric orchestral writing characterise this composer's output. If you haven't already discovered this important composer and you like Shostakovich and Prokofiev have no hesitation. Excellent performances and good sound at a great price. I hope it is the intention of Naxos to record all the symphonies: so much new and unfamiliar music that is of immense value.

What a find this Weinberg is, that goes for all these releases on Naxos, Chandos and Naïve. If you like Shosta, go for it.
