Editorial Reviews

The importance of Mieczysław Weinberg' 24 Preludes for solo cello, written for Rostropovich, lies beyond their superficial resemblance to Bach' Well-tempered Clavier or the piano preludes of Chopin or Weinberg' colleague Shostakovich. Instead, it res

Format: Audio CD
This recording consists of a set of 24 Preludes and a Sonata for Solo Cello, all originally written for Mstislav Rostropovich by Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Each prelude is short (generally under 2 minutes in length) and varied, although each has that unique Russian feel - if you like the music of Shostakovich, then you'll feel right at home here. There are preludes that seem methodical, some that suggest various folk tunes, some that are somber, and some that seem to be reaching for something. There is a wide range of emotions and feelings...it is a shame that Rostropovich, by choice, never played these.

As for the Cello Sonata, it starts off somber, lonely, and longing, becoming more forceful and urgent as the first movement continues. The second movement continues with the a more young-feeling version of the same theme that dominates the first movement, but in a bit of a playful way. The third movement gets right back to business. The sense of urgency is back, but also the feeling of purposefully trying to stay ahead of something. This sonata could easily be the sonata for a portion of a movie soundtrack. It's really fun to listen to.

So what do I think of this recording? The sound quality is good, and the cello playing is also quite good. Musically, if you like the music of Shostakovich then you will probably enjoy this disc. If you don't like that type of music, then this recording is probably not for you.
