ResMusica review of the Shostakovich / Weinberg record

"The capture, ideal in the superb hall of the Arsenal de Metz, allows you to taste all the subtleties of the game and the instrumental exchanges. By their discipline, both collective and individual, by their feverish commitment at all times, by their fine musicality that excludes neither the unstoppable violence nor the most collected tenuity, by their proven science of contrasts and by the management of tension along the length of large, solidly structured forms, the Metral provide a reference version of the two trios of Shostakovich.
