KURT WEILL (1900-1950): Symphony No. 1; Symphony No. 2; Lady in the Dark: Symphonic Nocturne (concert suite arranged by Robert Russell Bennett)

Marin Alsop, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra


September 2005

"An intriguing musical side-glance at Kurt Weill’s output. . . . Marin Alsop and her doughty Bournemouth ensemble play with tremendous spirit, thrillingly recorded." -- James Jolly, Gramophone

"The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under Marin Alsop give a satisfying performance. . . . Excellent clear sound, at Naxos’s price an easy recommendation." -- Patrick O’Connor, Gramophone

"Alsop is completely on top of the various styles required, and she commands the craggy, formal terrain.  The band (known in England as the BSO) plays with strength and purpose for her." --Richard Dyer, Boston Globe 

"This is a must-have disk, probably one of the year’s best . . . Once again, Naxos has shown itself to be more adventuresome than all the big name brands and—in the process—demonstrated that there is a market for music that is not just the same old, same old." -- Jerry Bowles, 

"Alsop puts her Bournemouth orchestra through its paces in a new Naxos release containing two major works by Kurt Weill." -- Michael Markowitz, 

"First-rate Weill . . . The performances are highly satisfactory, the sound, excellent and the price is right." -- Bob McQuiston, 

"This Weill disc helps to establish her (Alsop) as a conductor with a wide range of repertoire. I frankly find myself being eager to hear anything she records.  Strongly recommended." -- Scott Morrison, customer review
