World Premiere for Weinberg in Gohrisch

Save the date: From 20 June 2019, the charming village of Gohrisch in Saxony will be celebrating the 10th Shostakovich Days. Dmitri Shostakovich (1906 - 1975) was a long-term friend and musical confidant of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, which is why we are delighted to see that while the focus in this anniversary year is on the three Russian composers Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Stravinsky, there will also be a premiere of Weinberg’s “Zwei Lieder ohne Worte” for violin and piano, written by the composer in 1947. The concert will feature Linus Roth on the violin and Rosé Gallardo on the piano.   [read more]

American conductor Steven Mercurio will be directing the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion. The Bregenz version has been adapted by various other opera houses and has been on stage in Warsaw, London, Houston, Chicago, Detroit and Miami. A first Israeli performance of this opera, which revolves around the persecution of Jewish people in the Third Reich, is most certainly going to be a highlight in the Weinberg Centenary Year.   [read more]
