Info for Weiner: Serenade in F Minor, Op. 3 & 5 Divertimentos (Live)



Within his extended discography, Neeme Järvi has explored the work of some magnificent Eastern European composers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, recently including Suchoň and Scharwenka.

He here reveals the delightful, witty Hungarian style of Leó Weiner, who found inspiration in the music of Bartók, his near contemporary, and taught such great figures of the Hungarian musical scene as Solti and Doráti, but also Kurtág.

While ‘Hungarian style’ had been defined by Brahms and Liszt, Weiner gave it a personal slant with his clarity of scoring, featuring characterful solos for woodwinds and trumpet that have led commentators to register the influence of Bizet.

Throughout these recordings of the five Divertimentos and the Serenade, some of the works new to the catalogue, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor encapsulate the freshness and fluidity of engaging, yet too rarely performed compositions.

“… This is music of real beauty, and it’s the sort of thing at which Neeme Järvi seems to excel. Anyone with a taste for the musical paprikash served up by Léo Weiner in these works is sure to enjoy many memorable meals from this release. Strongly recommended.” Jerry Dubins

“…. He [Weiner] mixes wit and sentiment with a creative use of contrapuntal devices, and memorable thematic interest. He creates light, memorable classical music without dumbing down the result. Neeme Järvi is on his best behavior here, phrasing with great care. The Estonian NSO in turn provides excellent blend between the sections, and a velvety warmth to the strings in such movements as the Second Divertimento’s andante sostenuto that could rival any other orchestra …The sound is crisp and transparent, conveying all the color Weiner provides and Järvi puts on display. Recommended.” (Barry Brenesal, Fanfare)

"A near contemporary of Bartók, Weiner’s charming Serenade for small orchestra and lively five divertimentos, which date from 1933 to 1951, are given winning performances here.” (Rebecca Franks, BBC Music magazine)

“...they are all highly listenable pieces, each is very pleasant ... Neeme Järvi has a long history of producing impressive recordings for Chandos, and the technical quality here is never in question. The orchestra (of which he is Artistic Director), plays beautifully, with fetching solos when required, and the recording is set in a natural acoustic with plenty of bloom to the sound. The booklet is up to the house standard, giving a quite detailed description of each work." (Jim Westhead, MusicWeb-International)
