Mahler - Barshai : Symphony No. 10 (Recon. Barshai) & 5

Rudolf Barshai's Mahler Fifth earned a "10" for artistic quality when it first appeared on Laurel Records, and its reappearance at budget price, more readily available, should win this magnificent performance many more friends. But the main event here has to be Barshai's own orchestration of the unfinished Tenth Symphony, heavily scored for a huge orchestra that doesn't sound especially Mahlerian (at this stage in his career Mahler's own scoring would have been much leaner and more economical), but nevertheless played to the hilt by Barshai and his remarkable youth ensemble.

The first movement in particular has the most hair-raisingly terrifying climax that anyone has ever achieved from this music. Part of the effect may derive from Barshai's fuller instrumentation and bolder dynamics, and you can't help but notice the date of this live performance: September 12, 2001. Whatever the reason, the entire reading has tremendous intensity and conviction, though as with all arrangers of this work Barshai hasn't quite solved the problem of the finale's quick middle section and the return of the first-movement climax–nor perhaps (at this stage of composition) had Mahler. Also, despite enthusiastic and committed playing from the orchestra, the ensemble is a touch less steady than in the Fifth (nothing serious, just noted in comparison), and the sonics are a bit more opaque. Never mind: this is essential listening for Mahlerians and is self-recommending, particularly at the Brilliant Classics price. – David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com

Weinberg’s works remained in the shadow of his great contemporary Dmitri Shostakovich for a long time. In the meantime, Shostakovich himself highly appreciated the composing talent of his younger colleague. However, Weinberg’s vivid composing individuality, which combined elements of Jewish, Polish and Russian national cultures, allows us to speak about him as one of the most significant phenomena of domestic music of the second half of the 20th century…
