Marin Alsop Records Weill's Symphonies

ENGLAND - On January 13 and 14, the Poole Arts Centre played host to a recording session featuring its own Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marin Alsop.  The BSO, led by Alsop, recorded Kurt Weill's Symphony No. 1, "Berliner Symphony," and Symphony No. 2. 

Weill's first symphony, composed when he was 21, is an early work written before the composer had completed his studies in counterpoint with Philipp Jarnach.  The more sophisticated Symphony No. 2 may be one of Weill's most acclaimed works; it was composed in 1933, the year of Weill's flight from Germany and the Nazi regime.

Complementing Alsop and the BSO in the recording process were producer Andrew Walton from K&A Productions and engineer Mike Clements.  The disc follows the triumphal debut of Marin Alsop's first disc with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.
