Editorial Reviews

In this very special project, Linus Roth and José Gallardo interpret
Weinberg's sonatas and works for violin and piano in a complete anthology for the first time! Weinberg's repertoire has always been only partially performed and recorded, but never as a complete collection, and this recording features world premiere recordings of
Sonatas 2 & 6. This is currently the only available recording of the
Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes; it was recorded around 40 years ago but the vinyl is no longer available. Linus Roth and José Gallardo have been playing together since 1998, and have performed several hundred concerts together. Gallardo has won many national and international awards, and in 2006 Roth received the Echo Klassik Award for 'Best Newcomer' for his debut
CD with sonatas by Brahms, Debussy, Ysaÿe, and Mendelssohn, released on EMI Classics. As a concert soloist he has performed with the Stuttgart State Opera Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Bern Symphony Orchestra, and more.

I always delighted to discover "new" composers or pieces. One of my "Classical Music For You" FaceBook page followers recently made me aware of this recording of the violin and piano works by Mieczysław Weinberg on the Challenge Records label. I was already aware of Russian/Polish composer Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996), having discovered his Cello Concerto in a recording played by Mstislav Rostropovich, a number of years ago. I have subsequently not really explored his music that much...until now.

Russian violinist, Gidon Kremer had the following to say about Weinberg:
"I am enormously pleased that the world has finally discovered a very important composer in M. Weinberg. His great colleague, friend and supporter Dmitri Shostakovich would have been enormously pleased as well. I sincerely hope that Weinberg's musical legacy will attract many more interpreters. For me personally, the treasure trove of his compositions (unrecognised by many) is a source of constant excitement and inspiration."

The violin and piano works of Weinberg have certainly found inspired interpreters in German violinist Linus Roth and Argentinean pianist José Gallardo. According to the press release: "Violinist Linus Roth and pianist José Gallardo are the first to interpret Weinberg's sonatas and works for violin and piano in a complete anthology!" This recording features world premiere recordings of Sonatas 2 and 6; and the only available recording of the Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes.

This collection of pieces spans over almost 50 years, starting with one of Weinberg's first works, Three pieces for violin and piano written in 1934, while still a student at the Warsaw Conservatory; ending with his sixth and last violin and piano sonata, written in 1982.

This is a very nice selection of Weinberg's work. It is played very well. People who like Weinberg or Shostakovich would like it.
