About the album

Click here for the promo video of this album!

Benjamin Britten is best known for his operas and vocal music. But amid his output are also eight concertos, only one of them famous. In 1938 he wrote his Piano Concerto. The concerto was his last major work before shipping himself and his partner Peter Pears to
America where his first composition upon arrival was the Violin Concerto op.15. He finished it in September 1939. Of all his attempts at the concerto form, only the Violin Concerto has attained international fame and repertoire-status. Joan Chissell has called the Violin Concerto a work of “searching idiom, solid substance, and serious intent…” although “two of the three movements are completely dispassionate and extrovert in kind” without any “heart-felt appeal to the listener’s emotions [until the final passacaglia].” Britten took a good deal of the inspiration, if not outright quotes or technical means, for his concerto from Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto that Britten had heard in Barcelona in 1936.

Weinberg’s relationship with Shostakovich developed to a point where the closeness might even hurt his reputation when Weinberg is merely seen as a lesser Shostakovich, a darker, grim copy of the famous original. But Weinberg is neither lesser nor did he, though younger, copy Shostakovich any more than Shostakovich allowed himself to be influenced by Weinberg. The more one gets to
know the ‘junior partner’ of this twosome, the richer a picture emerges. Talking about this 1959 concerto, written for and dedicated to Leonid Kogan, Shostakovich remarked that he was “very impressed with [this] magnificent work. And I choose my words advisedly”. As the work will hopefully, surely gain in popularity, posterity will at last be able to confirm that Shostakovich was not exaggerating. Weinberg composed a masterpiece anything—famous or not—the century has to offer in the genre. With its affirmative power and irresistible drive from the first percussion crack of the Allegro molto to the last diminishing violin chord (ushered out by the horns in triple-pianissimo), it has a real chance of breaking into the phalanx of repertoire pieces, while the non-stop virtuosity
demanded of the soloist ought to delight and challenge any curious violinist.
Weinig gespeeld, maar uitermate bekoorlijk, deze combinatie van vioolconcerten
Deze opname van violist Linus Roth met het Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin van de vioolconcerten van Mieczysław Weinberg en Benjamin Britten, houdt de toehoorder in zijn ban. De jonge violist bespeelt het publiek met zijn gevoeligheid, emotie en waanzinnige techniek. Wat ook gevraagd wordt, want het vioolconcert van Weinberg vereist virtuositeit en een briljante, onweerstaanbare kracht. De virtuositeit van Weinberg gekoppeld aan de expressie van Britten: déze concerten zijn een lust voor het oor! "De interpertatie van de beide concerten door Linus Roth is zonder meer subliem, net als het orkest aandeel." Luister juni, 2014.

Weinberg's Vioolconcert (1959) werd opgedragen aan de violist Leonid Kogan en maakte veel indruk op Dmitri Sjostakovitsj, die erg onder de indruk was van dit magnifieke werk. Leonid Kogan (1924-1982) was een van de grootste Russische violisten en behoorde met zijn virtuoze speeltechniek tot de besten ter wereld. Zijn moderne speelstijl was niet soepel, maar wel vol kracht en passie.

De Duitse violist Linus Roth heeft een passie voor kamermuziek. In 2006 won hij een belangrijke prijs in de wereld van de klassieke muziek: de Echo Klassik. In één klap was hij bekend en maakte hij furore als een van de interessantste violisten van zijn generatie. "De door god gezonden Linus Roth, betovert zijn publiek met zijn meer dan 300 jaar oude Stradivarius, zijn soms zijdezachte toon, zijn ritmische precisie en zijn voelspriet voor muzikaal voorwaardelijke klankschakeringen en kleurnuances." Die Welt.
Roth treedt niet alleen op met standaardrepertoire, maar zet zich ook in voor nagenoeg vergeten werken en componisten. Dat bracht hem op het pad van Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Roth is oprichter van The International Mieczyslaw Weinberg Society en een van de belangrijkste uitvoerders van Weinbergs muziek. Dat leverde hem al veel erkenning op, van zowel publiek als critici. Met dit album toont Roth zijn enorme toewijding aan Weinberg, die zo steeds meer bekendheid krijgt en wiens prachtige muziek op deze manier herontdekt wordt.

De Engelsman Edward Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) componist, pianist en dirigent, had een leidende rol in de Britse klassieke muziek. Hij is vooral bekend vanwege zijn opera's en vocale muziek. Hij studeerde aan het Royal College of Music in Londen. In 1938 schreef Britten zijn Piano Concerto, waarna hij naar Amerika vertrok. Daar voltooide hij in 1939 zijn Violin Concerto, geïnspireerd op het indrukwekkende concert van Alban Berg. Alleen dit concert van Britten kreeg internationale bekendheid. Het wordt nog steeds niet vaak gespeeld, maar komt wel meer onder de aandacht, getuige dit album.

Het vioolconcert van Wijnberg is welhaast nog onbekender dan dat van Britten. Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996) werd in Warschau, Polen geboren. Daar studeerde hij piano aan de Frédéric Chopin muziekacademie. Al snel werd hij geprezen om zijn muzikale talent. In 1939 vluchtte Weinberg naar Rusland, zijn ouders en zus bleven helaas in Polen, waar ze vermoord werden in de oorlog. In Minsk studeerde Weinberg bij een voormalig student van Rimski-Korsakov. De ochtend na Weinbergs diploma-uitreiking vielen de Duitsers Rusland binnen. Opnieuw moest Weinberg vluchten. Dit keer naar Tasjkent. Daar werkte hij bij de opera en ontmoette hij andere evacués. Onder hen was ook de beroemde directeur van Het Joods Theater in Moskou, wiens dochter hij trouwde.
Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog laaide het antisemitisme in Rusland hevig op. Joden met een culturele achtergrond werden gearresteerd en later gedood. Weinbergs schoonvader werd vermoord door de geheime politie. Weinberg had, evenals Sjostakovitsj, een koffertje klaarstaan om bij een arrestatie nog iets te kunnen meenemen. In eerste instantie werd Weinberg gespaard voor dat lot. In 1953 werd hij toch gearresteerd, na de première van zijn rapsodie op Moldavische thema's, voor viool en orkest. Net als Sjostakovitsj nam Weinberg namelijk een loopje met de muziekkennis van de autoriteiten. De rapsodie wemelde van de Joodse associaties. Sjostakovitsj nam het voor hem op, maar waarschijnlijk kwam het niet verder dan een arrestatie, omdat Stalin dat jaar overleed. De autoriteiten hadden geen tijd meer om zich in Weinbergs zaak te verdiepen. Het is verbazend zo creatief als de componist was, gezien de tragiek in zijn veelbewogen leven. Hij schreef 26 symfonieën en 17 strijkkwartetten en vele andere werken, die voor het merendeel in Rusland werden uitgevoerd, door de beroemdste musici en orkesten.
Preisträger Linus Roth mit zwei bestechenden Violinkonzerten.

Seit seiner Auszeichnung mit dem Echo-Klassik 2006 errang der Geiger Linus Roth immer mehr Reputation. Seine Einspielung sämtlicher Werke für Violine und Klavier von Mieczysław Weinberg brachte ihm sowohl vom Publikum als auch von Kritikerseite große Anerkennung ein. Linus Roth macht sich auch weiterhin für die Kompositionen des Polen stark und hat jetzt dessen Violinkonzert aufgenommen. Es entstand 1959 für den Geiger Leonid Kogan und beeindruckte Dmitri Schostakowitsch, der das Konzert sehr lobte. Mit bestechender Kraft und unwiderstehlichem Antrieb zieht Weinbergs Violinkonzert den Zuhörer in seinen Bann. Auch die Virtuosität, die dem Musiker abverlangt wird, begeistert.

Linus Roth kombiniert dieses Werk mit dem Violinkonzert von Benjamin Britten, das 1939 fertig wurde und auch von Alban Bergs beeindruckendem Konzert inspiriert ist.

Benjamin Britten

Benjamin Britten is one most important British composers from the second half of the twentieth century. Remarkably, he focused on opera, a dying genre, at least in its current form. Britten's contributions however, among which Peter Grimes, The Rape of Lucretia, Gloriana, The Turn of the Screw, and Death in Venice, managed to remain core repertoire for opera companies to this day. Many of these productions included a role for his artistic partner and life companion Peter Pears. Britten also wrote a number of lieder for this tenor, among which his Serenade for tenor, horn and string orchestra. Yet, Britten excelled in many more genres.

He wasn't even 20 years old when he composed his brilliant Phantasy for hobo quartet and his friendship with the legendary cellist Rostropovich led to a Cello sonata, three Suites for cello solo and a Symphony for Cello and orchestra in the 1960s.

Britten never became Master of the Queen's Music, yet he surely had feeling for public sentiments. For example, as a pacifist, he taught his people about world peace through his War Requiem from 1962. Britten was an excellent interpreter of his own work, just like Bartók and Stravinsky. Many of his recordings have been matched, but never exceeded.

Mieczysław Weinberg

Mieczysław Weinberg was a Russian composer of Polish-Jewish origin. He studied piano at the Conservatory of Warsaw and was soon praised for his musical talent. When the Germans invaded Poland in 1939, Weinberg fled to Russia, first to Minsk and later to Tashkent, where he worked at the opera. There he also met Dmitri Shostakovich, who was impressed by his talent and would become an important influence on his music. Furthermore, he arranged an official invitation to Moscow for Weinberg, where he continued to stay for the rest of his life.

Life under Stalin was not easy for a Jewish composer like Weinberg. His works were not banned by the Soviet authorities, but they were not always well received. Moreover, he had to live in fear of being arrested, which happened to him in 1953. Shostakovich came to his rescue by proving his innocence in a letter to Lavrenti Beria, chief of the secret police. However, it was mainly due to Stalins death that Weinberg was saved.
After Stalins death, Weinberg continued to work on his extensive oeuvre, which consists of amongst others 26 symphonies, seventeen string quartets and more than 40 film scores. The majority of these works were performed by leading Russian musicians and orchestras. Thanks to the increasing amount of recordings, his works become more and more well-known outside of Russia.

Artistic music (ie serious music or classical music) in today's crisis is not just that the cultural emptiness created, but also because the lack of players to explore and ideas. Formalist work is superficial virtuoso playing with superficial imagination, out of the "musical" How to have vitality? How can I convince people? So, a lot of contemporary new works, namely the final play premiere is the inevitable result. And those who have been generations of master interpretation and the interpretation of the classic works of hundreds of years have been identical with the boring performance stifle vitality today, and this is the real reason for the classical music listeners in the aging of the failure.
