Notes & Reviews:

Since his death in 1996, the music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg is being discovered by musicians and listeners all around the world. His vast output includes 26 symphonies, seven operas, 17 string quartets and much other chamber music, and some 200 songs. A recording of Weinberg's last symphony (No. 21) and suite Polish Tunes for orchestra is in preparation.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Vainberg was obviously one of the major composers of the Soviet Union, and it is high time that we start programming his works here in the West. Yuri Kalnits and Michael Csanyi- Wills understand this music very well and confidently convey its various moods. I hope to hear more from this modern master.
