Definitive Recordings

"Nothing but praise of the highest order for this wonderful new disc of some of the concertante works from Weinberg, including two premiere recordings ...All in all a great disc, full of first class interpretations, all masterfully conducted by Thord Svedlund ... The Chandos recording always captures the perfect balance between the soloists and the orchestra, making the whole listening experience a pleasure. The Concerto is considered by some to be the best form or type of composition, because of it’s contrasts between soloist and full orchestra, and it’s demands on the instrumentalist. This recording meets those requirements very well and displays Weinberg’s genius to boot!"

Jean-Yves Duperron - Classical Music Sentinel


The soloists are finely attuned to their respective concertos, and Thord Svedlund secures an incisive response from his Gothenburg forces. Excellent sound and a welcome addition to the Weinberg discography
Gramophone

The ongoing series of Weinberg orchestral music on Chandos [is one] of the finest things happening on CD at the moment, and this fabulous collection of four Weinberg concertos – each work plugging a serious gap in the recorded repertoire – is one of the most sheerly exciting discs to come my way in a long time… A release of the first importance, then.
