Chamber Music for Europe Biennale - Mieczyslaw Weinberg

Nov 11, 2019
Catherine Danel

Brussels Chamber Music for Europe Biennale - 6th to 8th December

You love Schubert, Bartók and Shostakovich Mélodies that sing forever in our minds, music that exalts the human spirit or that transports us to other homelands ? Then join us for this Brussels tribute to Polish composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996). A close friend of Shostakovich whose works were performed by the great Russian musicians of his time, Weinberg transcended the dramas that shook Europe in the middle of the 20th century and at the heart of which he lived.

" … one of the most interesting composers of the 20th century… equally powerful and at times even more personal in his music than Shostakovich. " - Gidon Kremer.
