WEINBERG, M.: Symphony No. 18 / Trumpet Concerto (Balio, St. Petersburg Chamber Choir, St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra, V. Lande)

Mieczysław Weinberg’s Eighteenth Symphony is the centrepiece of his symphonic trilogy On the Threshold of War, which focusses on the traumas of the Soviet Union in World War II and stands as one of the most significant creations of his later years. Using texts by important Soviet poets, the work reflects on war with eloquent expressive power. The Trumpet Concerto is amongst Weinberg’s most substantial and diverse works from the 1960s. Ranging in effects from pointillist modernism to the grotesque and sardonic, it was described by Shostakovich as a ‘symphony for trumpet and orchestra’.
