Description: Historic recordings of symphonies by the orchestras and conductors for whom Weinberg wrote them. There's only one other recording of the 1968 Tenth available and we didn't offer it because it's on ECM which we don't have access to. It uses baroque suite form (five movements: Concerto grosso, Pastorale, Canzone, Burlesca and Inversio), which encourages Weinberg to adopt neo-baroque style but an often fierce and tense mood.
