This latest product of the welcome Weinberg revival is a corker. His 1959 violin concerto was highly thought of by Shostakovich, seemingly inhabiting his teacher’s soundworld. But that does Weinberg little justice: the energy and brooding intensity are distinctive. Gringolts plays it as if his life depended on it and, as in the imposing fourth symphony, the orchestral playing is deft, refined and committed. Urgently recommended.
