It would be nice to hear (or even see) - or perhaps that should read "see (or even hear)" - young Bloch’s Macbeth. Does any one know the work? Are there any recordings?

Here is a not very enthusiastic review of what seems to have been a largely amateur staging in London by "UC Opera":


It seems to be at least as rare as Enescu's Oedipe.

Appreciative, or investigatory, that is the question . . .

There are at least three recordings of this work to my knowledge.

One is a (presumably) radio recording of excerpts with the Suisse Romande Orchestra conducted by Ernest Ansermet. This was released on a limited-circulation LP.

The second derives from a live performance in Montpellier and was issued on CD on the late lamented Actes Sud label. You can still find copies of this at the usual online vendors.

The third is also from a live performance in Dortmund and released on Capriccio. I have not heard this version but there is a useful comparison of the two on Amazon.

Hope this helps.

Thank you - I'll look out for those. I am always interested in music written at that period; it often seems more advanced than what came before and what came later.

There is also the fine ASV recording by Dalia Atlas Stermberg and the Royal Philharmonic.
2 Interludes from Bloch's Macbeth, Symphony in E Flat, 3 Jewish Poems, and In Memoriam.
Catalogue DCA 1019.
Not sure it is still in print.

Yes, I have that CD as well and it aroused interest in 'Macbeth'. I tend to like everything I hear by Bloch.
