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.
Quote from: nn-digger on April 05, 2011, 11:10:02 PMHi, all. I really wonder that somebody in US and UK knows about such ruassian composer as Weinberg. Most people even in Russia don't know who he is. As for me, best of his is chamber symphonies, symphony No 5.PS: sorry that I speak English bad.
Quote from: eyeresist on April 04, 2011, 06:10:41 PMHow many blu ray players do you need?
Quote from: Daverz on April 04, 2011, 07:03:04 PMMDT has the DVD.http://www.mdt.co.uk/MDTSite/product//NEOS51006.htm
Quote from: paulrbass on April 06, 2011, 03:20:21 PMIt's not that there is only one blu ray, but more of where it is located. I don't spend much time in my parents room. Having a DVD version would be more convenient. Is that region free?
Quote from: Lethe Dmitriyevich Shostakovich on April 26, 2011, 12:49:48 PMI pray that Chandos aren't being too optimistic in spreading the symphonies so thinly across each volume - I will just die if this cycle peters out with only half of them recorded, but enough disc space to have recorded most.Still, putting aside those worries, it will be nice to discover some lighter Weinberg fare - I know none of his orchestral music outside of the symphonies and concertos - thanks for the notification
Quote from: paulrbass on April 26, 2011, 12:45:46 PMChandos is releasing a CD containing Weinberg's 3rd symphony, and the Golden Key Suite #4 with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Thord Svundland on May 31, for anyone interested.
Quote from: paulrbass on April 26, 2011, 01:00:28 PMI have found some old olympia recordings online, so I was able to get some other symphonies besides the ones Chandos released. But I agree, I hope Chandos continues the cycle, and other lighter pieces.
Quote from: Il Barone Scarpia on April 26, 2011, 03:46:42 PMFull price for a release of 49 minutes
Quote from: Lethe Dmitriyevich Shostakovich on April 26, 2011, 04:01:07 PMSeriously? I agree, that is not acceptable nowadays. Why should I pay for 70% of the music I can get from another disc?
Quote from: Lethe Dmitriyevich Shostakovich on April 26, 2011, 04:14:02 PMI wish I had the guts to do things like that This is more or less my scale:It's about the 55 min mark that it becomes acceptable, anything around 70 and I can appreciate that the label made an effort. I can imagine a label owner seeing this and raging, but with a very limited income I have to get the best value I can and runtime is a consideration in my purchasing decisions.
Quote from: Il Barone Scarpia on April 26, 2011, 04:16:21 PMAs far as I am concerned it is a 32 minute disc (I'm not interested in "Suite No 4" from a ballet I never heard of).
Quote from: paulrbass on April 26, 2011, 04:22:12 PMI would be interested in the Suite if it wasn't nearly a third of the CD. That's a shame, too bad they couldn't couple it with a more substantial piece. I guess I'll have to find other options....I may end up buying it someday used for a decent price.
Quote from: Il Barone Scarpia on April 26, 2011, 04:24:43 PMIf no one buys it you can't find it used. I'll be looking for it as an overstock at Berkshire.
Quote from: paulrbass on April 26, 2011, 04:31:28 PMI'm sure some people will buy it, at least eventually. Then I am also sure it will eventually be available used via the Amazon marketplace.
Quote from: Il Barone Scarpia on April 26, 2011, 03:56:51 PMMy interest in "Vainberg" came from those Olympia releases. I wish I had known they would disappear so fast, I would have gotten more of them. The Chandos series seems to have gone off the rails and I'm afraid we may be left without a good option for this composer.
