5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Composer is coming in from the cold!, 14 Dec. 2012
T. Holmes (Hampshire, England) - See all my reviews
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.
