This week’s free download is the third activity; Allegro Vivas, From Kurt Weill’s Dark and Brooding Second Symphony As a soloist in the concert.
It’s hard not to interpret the 1930s themes of chaos and darkness as emblematic. Our reviewer Claire Jackson wrote. ‘The Ulster Orchestra gets into every corner of this neglected room (the brass is particularly impressive).’
Claire was impressed by the Violin Concerto, writing: ‘At 24, Weill’s iconic Berlin-cabaret sound is already recognizable – the dance-like flute in the ‘Serenata’; And a spinning final. Soloist Tamas Kossis, conductor of the Ulster Orchestra, is superb in this immaculate recording.’
