Quote from: Maciek on January 15, 2009, 09:08:40 AMI really don't have enough overall knowledge of Weinberg to say if the piece is one of his better works but it's certainly very good, I would recommend it. I only know the Rostropovich - does anyone know if there are any other recording around? (Not that I feel the Rostropovich lacking in any department whatsoever.)
Quote from: Dundonnell on January 15, 2009, 09:23:45 AMYes there is apparently-http://home.wanadoo.nl/ovar/sovrev/vainberg/vb10071.htm

Quote from: Harry on November 14, 2009, 03:41:53 AMThe SQ are not easy listening, its quite a ordeal to get through these depressions evoking music, at least for me. I am still trying to come over the first two volumes, so I am not all to sure that I will buy Volume III. Weinberg is even worse in creating depressions as Pettersson, no small fry either.
QuoteWeinberg, Mieczyslaw (1919-1996) - Concertos (cello, flute, & clarinet) - my first disc of this Soviet composer (apparently considered as a triumvirate w/ Prokofiev & Shosty) - not sure 'where' to go w/ him from here; he wrote about 2 dozen symphonies, 17 string quartets, and much more music! CPO is putting out the SQs, but would like to see a 'box set' materialize?
Quote from: SonicMan on February 07, 2010, 02:00:53 PMJust wanted to join this thread - linked here by Maciek - thanks! Dave Just acquired my first disc of this composer (post partly quoted from the 'listening thread' - comments below and anxious to obtain more!
Quote from: Guido on November 14, 2009, 03:29:29 AMThe Rostropovich recording of the cello concerto is infinitely better than the other one available, even if the sound is a little dated - it's still a ravishing account.

Quote from: bhodges on November 13, 2008, 09:03:53 AMJust this week I discovered some of Weinberg's music in a concert with three substantial chamber works, and it they were all very impressive. Tuesday night's program was:Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, Op. 18 (1945)From Zhukovsky's Lyrics, Op. 116, vocal cycle for bass and piano (1976)Piano Quintet, Op. 18 (1944)The concert was the third in a five-day survey called Music in Exile: Émigré Composers of the 1930s at the Museum of Jewish Heritage here, by the ARC Ensemble of Toronto. Due to a schedule change, they played Weinberg's Piano Quintet on opening night as well. Here is a review from yesterday's New York Times. I loved the Clarinet Sonata, liked the song cycle, too, but the Piano Quintet is the real stunner. I haven't heard a piano quintet this interesting since Schnittke's. Definitely want to pick up the recording below, with the quintet and the sonata played by the same musicians (who were superb, by the way). --Bruce
Quote from: Soapy Molloy on August 16, 2010, 02:57:00 AMInteresting review here from the Bregenz Festival of a production of Weinberg's Holocaust opera The Passenger which apparently will be coming to London (and elsewhere) in 2012. One to get on the mailing list for.
Quote from: Daverz on August 16, 2010, 03:13:54 AMReplying to an old post (is Guido still around?), but if the "other one" is the Drobinsky recording, I don't agree at all. The klezmer aspects of the score come across much better in the Drobinsky recording.
Quote from: paulrbass on January 27, 2011, 04:40:54 PMI saw on Arkivmusic that a bluray disc of Weinberg's opera The Passenger was released in November. I am looking for the DVD version from a store in the states, as we only have one blu ray player in the house.
