Weinberg from Wyastone Leys

Chamber music by Moisey (Mieczyslaw) Weinberg, one of the 20th century's forgotten musical stars, performed at the Wyastone Leys concert hall. Weinberg: Piano Quintet, Op 18.

Chamber music by one of the 20th century's forgotten musical stars, performed at the Wyastone Leys concert hall in the Monmouthshire countryside. Moisey (Mieczyslaw) Weinberg's Jewish heritage meant that his career was all but destroyed, first in Poland then in exile in the Soviet Union. Only now is his work re-emerging as a worthy counterpart to the music of Shostakovich and Prokofiev.
