Notes & Reviews:

Mieczyslaw Weinberg, born in Warsaw in 1919, became a close friend of Shostakovich in Moscow after fleeing eastwards before the invading Nazis in 1939. His vast output includes 26 symphonies, seven operas, 17 string quartets, much other chamber music, and some 200 songs. His style has much in common with Shostakovich, as these four violin works show: fluent contrapuntal skill, a keen feeling for melody often inflected with Jewish cantilena, and an acute sense of drama that combines a natural narrative manner with an extraordinary ability to create atmosphere, often from just a handful of notes. Since his death in 1996, musicians and listeners all around the world have discovered his music.
