The unreleased second album by an original lady from the canyon. Recorded and recanted in 1969, Greasepaint Smile is more assured than its self-titled, Tetragrammaton-issued predecessor. Weinberg's finger-picked acoustic is layered over distant drumming, while her gravel-pit voice evokes life, love, and mortality. Fellow Torontonian Neil Young sears "Houses" with his signature fuzz-tone, casting chaos over the beautiful ballad, while J.D. Souther, Kenny Edwards, and Nils Lofgren, pick up the slack. Masterfully produced by David Briggs, Greasepaint Smile has climbed out of the canyon and is bound for every turntable east of the 405.

This double album, recorded in Vienna and in Riga in June 2015, includes all four of the chamber symphonies written in the last decade of Polish-born Soviet composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s life, plus a beautiful new arrangement – by Gidon Kremer and Kremerata percussionist Andrey Pushkarev – of the early Piano Quintet of 1944, heard here in a premiere recording. It is a recording which underlines the importance and originality of Weinberg’s music. For Gidon Kremer, “Weinberg has become a source of unlimited inspiration. No other composer has entered my own and Kremerata Baltica’s repertoire and program concepts with such intensity.” Weinberg’s chamber symphonies are Kremer says, “the most personal reflections of a great composer on his own life and his generation, like a diary of the most dramatic period of the 20th century.”

Label: NEOS - Date: 2011

Three Palms for string quartet and soprano, op. 120 (1977): A poem by Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov (1814–1841) speaks of three palm trees in the Arabian desert. Weinberg used this text as the basis of his like-named work, scored for the unusual combination of soprano and string quartet. The character of this 20-minute work, conceived in 1977, comes from its mixture of chamber music, song cycle and cantata……..

For their third album for the Resonus Classics label, the acclaimed Dudok Quartet Amsterdam releases a new recording based around the theme of solitude. Recently announced as recipients of a prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Award for 2018, the quartet presents a varied programme inspired by loss and feelings of loneliness, such as Mendelssohn’s Op. 80 ‘Requiem for Fanny’ and music by the isolated Soviet composers, Shostakovich and Weinberg who both sacrificed much in pursuit of their art.

When conceiving his Polonaise for orchestra, Penderecki used the fantasia form, not unfamiliar to Chopin, which is based on a primary theme, which, as the piece progresses, is being developed, transformed and subjected to several different variations. Richly orchestrated, it allows performers to create colours that overlap each other while influencing the overall musical expression. Spatiality is a very important aspect of this work as during its world premiere the wind instruments were placed on the balcony of the Warsaw Philharmonic's Concert Hall. The composition could be called "the apotheosis of a polonaise" or, as the composer prefers, "a small symphonic poem on the theme of a polonaise".

Weinberg’s symphonies are recognized today as a substantial continuation of the Russian tradition. His Twelfth Symphony, written in the style and spirit of Shostakovich, is a response to the death in August 1975 of his great friend and supporter of 32 years. With its subtle stylistic allusions to Shostakovich, this is the longest and most wide-ranging of Weinberg’s purely orchestral symphonies.

Not merely the atmosphere, but also the various references suggest that Weinbergs music including his String Quartets Nos. 8, 9 and 10 comes from the mind of someone who suffered because of the tragic fate of his family and missed the lost homeland where he had spent 'the best and happiest years' of his life, as he confessed many years later to an interlocutor from Poland. These three works Opp. 66, 80 and 85 were composed in a period when he lived off memories, which is also evident in his choice of texts for his vocal works.

Not merely the atmosphere, but also the various references suggest that Weinberg’s music – including his String Quartets Nos. 8, 9 and 10 – comes from the mind of someone who suffered because of the tragic fate of his family and missed the lost homeland where he had spent 'the best and happiest years' of his life, as he confessed many years later to an interlocutor from Poland. These three works – Opp. 66, 80 and 85 – were composed in a period when he lived off memories, which is also evident in his choice of texts for his vocal works. His Symphony No. 6 Op. 79 sets Jewish and Russian poems about the war, while in The Diary of Love Op. 87 he uses texts by Stanislaw Wygodzki which lament the death of the poet’s daughter in Auschwitz.
