Zondagochtendmuziek - ARC Ensemble - Piano Quintet, op. 18 (1944) Mieczyslaw Weinberg

Dinsdagavond speelden het Quator Danel en Alexander Melnikov het Pianokwintet op. 18 van Mieczyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996), gecomponeerd in 1944, in de Hertz zaal van Tivoli Vredenburg.

Op de website Mieczyslaw Weinberg (Moishei Vainberg). The Composer and His Music lees je onder meer:
One feature that is prominent above others in many of Weinberg's works is a certain religious yearning, a soulfulness that makes some works (especially those for solo stringed instruments) resemble the intonation of a prayer, yet one which is approachable to everyone, regardless of background or personal beliefs. Themes and ideas dwelling on subjects such as suffering, love and faith are not uncommon, but there is also a characteristic, affirmative joy in life. Ideas centered on suffering feature prominently in so many works, no doubt due to the circumstances of the composer's difficult life and the hardships he had to endure during the wars of the 20th century. In this sense, there is an tremendous edifying quality to the music, combined with a trust and hope in something perennial and eminently human, capable of rising above all unfavourable conditions. It is in this way that Weinberg's music carries something resonantly Divine – a light going beyond all restrictions and challenges, and able to change the world for the better.
En dat geldt ook allemaal voor dit indrukwekkende en indringende Pianokwintet. Hier uitgevoerd door het ARC Ensemble.
