Weinberg: Concertino, Op. 43 & 24 Preludes for Solo Cello, Op. 100
Marina Tarasova (cello)
Musica Viva Chamber Orchestra, Alexander Rudel
The Concertino for Cello & Orchestra was found in 2016 and established as a separate fore-runner to the later Cello Concerto. The Preludes autographed edition was presented to Marina Tarasova when she studied with Weinberg in 1979.
"Tarasova is alive to the klezmer intonations that surface most obviously in the Scherzo third movement, and in general this first recording makes a far stronger case for the work than its Moscow concert premiere with different artists…Another unmissable disc, then, for Weinberg followers."
