Honour tradition and express fascination with modernism – this is how, in short, one can characterize Mieczysław Weinberg’s style. It is possible that art which tries to meet the requirements of the two seemingly opposite artistic traditions is doomed from the start to incomprehension and criticism.

For many years Weinberg’s art was treated as something referential and anachronistic. From the 1960s to the 1990s, classical music underwent rapid changes with regards to discovering technical possibilities in the electronic, sonoristic and formalistic experimentations, and the emergence of performance. It is, therefore, no wonder that Weinberg’s music did not fit the modern world in the slightest.

In recent years there has been a rise in the interest in this great composer’s work – his pieces are being performed on international stages and a growing number of recordings of Weinberg’s music appear every year. We present to you our record, hoping that we have managed to capture our delight over Weinberg’s unique music and share it with our listeners.
