Weinberg, Mieczyslaw:

Strykekvartetter nr. 1-17

Velg antall  


Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s genuinely awe-inspiring complete seventeen string
quartets are now available in a box set in interpretations by the Belgian
Danel Quartet that can only be described as a musical blessing. Inspired by
Shostakovich’s widow Irina (and other factors), the Quatuor Danel began
acquiring the scores of all seventeen Weinberg quartets in 1995 and after a
number of years (2007 to 2012) has now finished its complete recording for
cpo. The BBC Music Magazine immediately named the first volume the best
chamber music CD in March 2008, and further prizes followed.
klassik-heute.com wrote, »In content and skill the works are equal to good
works by Shostakovich, but this does not at all mean that Weinberg was a
Shostakovich imitator. The Danels perform with unabating, often almost
urgent intensity.« And Weinberg’s teacher and friend Shostakovich never
missed an opportunity to recommend the works of his friend and fellow
musician Weinberg. They were brothers in spirit. Both worked in manifold
genres and over a broad stylistic spectrum ranging from folklore (in
Weinberg’s case, Jewish folklore in particular) to twelve-tone elements. In
the field of the string quartet Shostakovich involved his pupil in a
friendly competition and was very happy in 1964 to be the first of the two
to write his No. 10. Our final volume received the highest marks from
klassik-heute.com: »A full 10 for exciting music and its enthralling
interpretation by an exciting ensemble.«
