Format: Audio CD
A Polish composer who fled to the Soviet Union at the outbreak of World War II, Weinberg (known as Moisei Vainberg in the USSR) became good friends with Shostakovich but was largely ignored by the Russian musical establishment. When his father-in-law was implicated in the Doctor's Plot, Weinberg -- who was Jewish -- was arrested and perhaps saved largely by Shostakovich's intervention. In any case, the composer's reputation has blossomed in the years since his death in 1996, and this disc is part of a complete cycle of Weinberg's string quartets. The the pair on this release are clearly works of the 20th Century. Of the two, I find the No. 4 far more interesting. It's packed with angst which is expressed in several ways, from the insect-like second movement to the mysterious third one. The No. 16, on the other hand, struck me as more uniform -- and therefore perhaps just a tad monotonous -- in its approach. Quiet and conveying a sense of worried anticipation, it has its moments of agitation but still pales before the No. 4, to my untrained ear. In any case, if you like modern quartets, you might check out these two. Me, I'm heading off to another pair in the series....
