Mieczysław Weinberg, Dmitri Shostakovich / Kolja Blacher, Jascha Nemtsov - Violin Sonatas mp3 album

Shostakovich, Weinberg: Violin Sonatas. Weinberg's sonatas, both from 1947, are tonal works of grave seriousness and solemn intensity, while Shostakovich's sonata from 1968, although still basically tonal, pushes the limits both of tonality and expressivity. Together they make for fascinating comparisons and, if the performances had been better, they might have made for captivating listening.

Violin Sonatas Nos 3 & 4. Performer: Kolja Blacher (violin), Jascha Nemtsov (piano). In fact not only do the Third and Fourth Violin Sonatas predate Shostakovich’s one essay in the genre by over 20 years, but they also feature strikingly original textural and harmonic elements which the older composer may well have borrowed for his own work.

Weinberg always considered himself a Shostakovich disciple, although he never studied with the older man. Writers have criticized Weinberg as a mere imitator, a charge as truthful of Schumann and Brahms. Weinberg's third and fourth sonatas both come from 1947.

Mieczysław Weinberg (also Moisey or Moishe Vainberg, Moisey Samuilovich Vaynberg; Russian: Моисей Самуилович Вайнберг; Polish: Mojsze Wajnberg; 8 December 1919 – 26 February 1996) was a Soviet composer of Polish-Jewish origin. From 1939 he lived in the Soviet Union and Russia and lost most of his family in the Holocaust. He left a large body of work that included twenty-two symphonies and seventeen string quartets.

Jascha Nemtsov became famous for his numerous recordings (on Bechstein too). 2013 he was appointed as professor for History of Jewish Music at the Liszt School of Music Weimar. The pianist Jascha Nemtsov is equally accomplished as a soloist and an outstanding chamber musician. He was born in Magadan (Siberia) and grew up in Saint Petersburg where he graduated from a special music school and was awarded a gold medal. In 2007 his CD featuring sonatas for violin and piano by Shostakovich and Weinberg, together with the violinist Kolja Blacher, was awarded the German Record Critics Prize. In 2004, Jascha Nemtsov earned his doctorate and in 2007 his habilitation.
