17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 17, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Mieczyslaw Weinberg (sometimes spelt Vainberg; 1919-1996) is getting a good deal of attention these days, and for good reason. He studied in Warsaw and later Minsk, and became a close friend of Shostakovich; of meeting Shostakovich he reportedly said, 'It was as if I had been born anew.' His music certainly bears more than a trace of Shostakovian influence, although there is much less sarcasm and angst in his music.

This CD contains four concertos, two for flute, one for clarinet, and best of all an absolutely gorgeous cello concerto (called a Fantasia for Cello and Orchestra). All of these pieces are very good and they are given stellar performances on this disc. The cello concerto (1951-53) is unfailingly mellifluous, cleverly constructed (it is in three movements played without pause), and sounds like it must be extraordinarily grateful to play. Its silken melodies stick in the ear, the middle section has gypsy, or at least folk-like, elements, and the Adagio finale section is moving. I frankly think this concerto deserves to join the fairly small ranks of popular and often-played cello concertos. Cellist Claes Gunnarsson plays it as to the manner born.

The two flute concertos - No. 1 for flute and string orchestra (1961) and No. 2 for flute and full orchestra (1987) -- have more than a passing resemblance to Nielsen's concerto for that instrument, but don't quite have the vehement outbursts of the Nielsen. Weinberg's sly sense of humor is displayed in the Second Concerto's finale when he quotes two the repertoire's most famous flute passages, Gluck's 'Dance of the Blessed Spirits' and Bach's 'Badinerie' from the Second Orchestral Suite. Both concerti combine pastoral and rather darker elements.

The Cello Concerto is one of the best composition by a composer who deserves more attention. Performaces and recording quality are fantastic
