Product Description

The extensive and highly significant oeuvre of Mieczyslaw Weinberg is gradually getting the recognition it deserves in the West. Cpo has championed the music of Weinberg and last year released a successful disc of his piano music with Elisaveta Blumina. If in his early piano compositions Weinberg created surprises with his unexpected musical maturity, then the chamber works for woodwinds selected here display even more emotional depth, seriousness, and drama. The artists on this disc skilfully master the astonishingly high technical demands of these pieces.

Format: Audio CD
Once described as the third in line of Soviet composers, after Prokofiev and Shostakovich, the music of Weinberg (1919-1996) has been enjoying a mini revival of late, especially his opera The Passenger, which the composer regarded as his most important work, and which has enjoyed recent success both in the opera house and on disc. The most confusing thing about this composer his is name, as there are various spellings with Vainberg and the spelling used on this recording seeming to be the most prevalent at the moment, well at least when it comes to recordings released in this country.
His music, at times, can be seen to be influenced by his great friend Shostakovich, with this influence being most prominent in the Clarinet Sonata Op.28 of 1945, indeed if you came to hear this work blind, you could easily mistake the march like section of the second movement to be a lost work of the great man! This does not mean that Weinberg is a second rate Shostakovich as is attested in the remaining music on this disc, which is strong and individual in its outlook. His 12 Miniatures for Flute and Piano Op.29 dates from the following year and is a suite of short dance-like pieces in which the composer clearly lays down his own composing style. This style can be seen to be more modern in its outlook than Prokofiev or Shostakovich, and is especially so in his later works such as his Sonata for Solo Bassoon Op.133, dating from 1981 and which at 21 minutes is the longest work on the disc. This work is followed on the disc by the Trio Op.127 of 1979, both these later works are more challenging for the listener with their tuneful modernity taking more effort to like, yet I find them the more rewarding works on the disc!
The playing is excellent throughout, the pianist, Elisaverta Blumina has collected around herself a collection of very fine musicians, the result being some wonderful ensemble work resulting in a most rewarding disc.

Weinberg chamber music woodwinds 15 July 2012
By E. S. Wilks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mieczyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996), a Soviet-Russian composer of Polish-Jewish origin, was also known as Moisey Vainberg, Moishe Vainberg, or Moisey Samuilovich Vaynberg. From 1939 he lived in the Soviet Union and Russia and lost most of his family in the Holocaust. His large output, which until recently has been unjustly neglected, includes 25 symphonies, over 40 film and animation scores, 7 operas, 17 string quartets, and many instrumental and recital works. Influences upon Weinberg's compositional style include Shostakovich Prokofiev, Myaskovsky, Bartok, and Mahler. His trumpet concerto, for example, quotes Mendelssohn's well-known Wedding March. Ethnic influences include Moldavian, Polish, Uzbek, and Armenian elements, as well as Jewish music.
Lovers of rare 20th-century chamber music should find something to enjoy on this new CD from CPO, which includes two early works from the 1940s, the Clarinet Sonata, Op. 28, and 12 Miniatures for Flute and Piano, Op. 29, plus two works from the 1980s, the solo Bassoon Sonata, Op. 133 (1981), and the Trio for Flute, Viola, and Harp, Op. 127 (1980). To my ear, the Trio sounds atonal, but since I'm not a musician I can neither affirm nor refute this.
The recorded sound is first-class.
