Quote from: Symphonic Addict on September 02, 2023, 12:58:02 PMThis is one of the most compelling Weinberg's symphonies, so I have high expectations of this recording. Hopefully Chandos will also record his symphonies 9, 11 and 15 in due time.
Quote from: Brian on September 02, 2023, 04:43:20 PMChandos and Naxos had originally agreed to split the cycle, with Naxos taking the works with vocalists and chorus under the direction of Antoni Wit, and Chandos to do the purely orchestral stuff. Antoni Wit's departure from the Warsaw Philharmonic must have been a major setback to recording Naxos' contributions*. This new release is a little bit strange because Naxos already recorded No. 12 so it is the first time they have overlapped on each other's work. So far we have:Chandos - 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 14, 16, 20Naxos - 6, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19Neither, but other labels - 2, 10, 21, 22None, as described by lunar22 above - 9, 11, 15*A 2011 interview with Wit on Naxos' website, which you can find by googling his name and "Polish Ambition," mentions specific plans for Wit to record Bacewicz, Panufnik, and the complete Dvorak choral works. But when Wit left Warsaw, the new music director, Jacek Kaspszyk, signed an exclusive contract with EMI/Warner. Kaspszyk is gone now but Wit seemingly hasn't returned. 12 years later, Wit has recorded two Dvorak releases but the rest of those Naxos projects were handed over to new conductors and ensembles. Wit's upcoming Penderecki CD with the Norrkoping Symphony is his first new Naxos recording since 2019 and only his third since leaving Warsaw. Since he's 79, health problems might be a factor as well.
Quote from: lunar22 on September 03, 2023, 04:39:38 AMDidn't know Chandos have done 12 and it will be interesting to hear it -- the first symphony completed after the death of Shostakovich is certainly a powerful one. Still, I'd rather have heard one of the ones not done at all.
Quote from: relm1 on September 03, 2023, 05:59:14 AMIt looks like that one is on both but the chandos will be released October 20, 2023. Can't wait...I love that one too! By the way, pictures of composers "at work" always seem so staged...why on earth would they wear a tie while working all alone on their music unless it was a publicity shot?

Quote from: lunar22 on September 04, 2023, 04:23:14 AMThanks for the release date. I'm pretty happy with what Lande has done in 12 on the whole (some works suit his style a bit better than others) but of course any newcomer is welcome in this important symphony.
Quote from: Wieland on February 13, 2017, 12:56:40 PMI am just back from a concert with the German Premiere of Weinbergs 21. Symphony. Thomas Sanderling was conducting the Staatsorchester Stuttgart (that's the Opera Orchestra) with Mandy Fredrich as soloist. It was the first time that I experienced a Weinberg symphony live and at one the best seats of the house. A tremendous experience. The music is still turning around in my head. What a gorgeous piece of music. And Thomas Sanderling was mesmerizing and himself mesmerized by the music. The reception by the audience was very good, six or seven calls. Unfortunately, it was not recorded. .

Quote from: Symphonic Addict on November 06, 2023, 03:50:09 PMYou're missing some of his most interesting symphonies, being the 5th a sort of turning point in the cycle.
