Notes & Reviews:

The significant oeuvre of the Polish-Russian composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg has been increasingly receiving proper recognition; cpo's internationally acclaimed recordings attest to this. These select chamber compositions show emotional depth, seriousness and high drama. The tragic element repeatedly finds expression in his works, but very often the minor key ends up going over into major. His quest for a good end, for peace, is encountered almost everywhere in his music.

Nabil Shehata performs with distinction the twenty-minute Sonata for double bass.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The trio is a wild ride, the most aggressive piece from Vainberg (also Weinberg, as the label spells it) I've encountered yet! The Violin Sonatina is lighter in tone, with easy-going sections. The Double Bass Sonata has about three and a half movements' worth of good material spread out over six movements. The musicians in the trio are superb; Ofer in the sonatina and Shehata in the sonata are only a tier below them. There's great music here for anyone.
