Info for Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Complete Sonatas for Solo Viola
This special edition commemorates Mieczysław Weinberg's centennial by highlighting a remarkable, rare four-sonata set for solo viola. In addition to over 90 minutes of unique music – intensely vivid, warm, thought-provoking – this double album edition includes a special in-depth essay by Weinberg authority David Fanning, rare historical photographs (some never before published), inputs from several notable personalities and an essay by the performer.
“Each bar of this interpretation by Viacheslav Dinerchtein is filled with deep insight and dedication to a genius whose music we should all get to know. The masterful interpretation of these virtually never performed works should arouse the interest of other musicians and music lovers, and I hope the public will be as excited as I am by this recording of the Sonatas for Viola Solo composed by Weinberg, truly a milestone of contemporary viola repertoire.” (Gidon Kremer)
