WEINBERG, M.: Symphony No. 12 / The Golden Key Suite No. 4 (St. Petersburg State Symphony, Lande)

Weinberg’s symphonies are recognised today as a substantial continuation of the Russian tradition. His Twelfth Symphony, written in the style and spirit of Shostakovich, is a response to the death in August 1975 of his great friend and supporter of 32 years. With its subtle stylistic allusions to Shostakovich, this is the longest and most wide-ranging of Weinberg’s purely orchestral symphonies. This recording has been prepared utilising the composer’s hand written materials and markings. One of only two surviving ballet scores, The Golden Key is a compelling satire, extending a lineage which includes Prokofiev and Stravinsky. The St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Lande have also recorded Weinberg’s Nineteenth (8.572752) and Sixth symphonies (8.572779).
