Notes & Reviews:

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra led by Svedlund is back with a new recording in the series devoted to works by Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Born in Poland into a Jewish family, Weinberg fled before the 1939 German invasion and spent most his life in the Soviet Union. He was a friend and neighbor of Shostakovich, a champion of his music. Symphony No.3 (1949-50) was composed shortly after Zhdanov launched the anti-formalism campaign to produce music for the People (drawing on folk material).

BBC Music Magazine
[the Third Symphony is] an immensely attractive work, the folk melodies with their distinctly Belorussian and Polish inflections skilfully woven into the symphonic fabric and clothed in imaginative orchestration...both works are projected with great energy and commitment by Thord Svedlund and the Gothernburh Symphony Orchestra in this sumptuously recorded release.

Gramophone Magazine
These are beautifully prepared and thorough committed renderings under Thord Svedlund's clear-headed lead, realistically captured by the microphones within the Gothenburg orchestra's acoustically ideal home.
