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.
