"Many of my works are related to the topic of war, but this is not the result of a conscious decision; rather, having to deal with the issue of war is something which has been imposed on me by my own fate and the tragic fate of my family. I consider it my moral duty to write about war and about the appalling things which have befallen people in our century." With this statement, Mieczyslaw Weinberg describes his biography, his character and his aims as a composer. These four observations alone are probably enough to enable us to hear his music with greater historical and emotional awareness. This new release is a portrait of a most underrated composer and Shostakovich's best mate Mieczyslaw Weinberg.
