The music of Alexander Krein and Mieczyslaw Weinberg is performed by pianist Anastasia Seifetdinova: Sketches of Youth, op.21, and 4 Pieces, op.7, by Krein, and the Piano Sonata no.4 in B minor by Weinberg.

Alexander Krein and Mieczyslaw Weinberg were both Soviet composers of Jewish origin and both left behind substantial bodies of excellent work. Weinberg was particularly prolific with more than one-hundred and fifty published works, including seven operas, twenty-two symphonies, seventeen string quartets, and twenty-eight instrumental sonatas.

In 2008 Ms. Seifetdinova received the “Outstanding Award”, which granted her a return engagement to Carnegie Hall on 27 April 2008. In October 2010 Anastasia was awarded a Special Prize for the best interpretation of French composition at the International Piano Competition “Parnassos” in Mexico. In 2013, Anastasia was granted the Extraordinary Abilities in the Arts permanent US residence, as one of a small percentage of those who have risen to the top in their field of endeavour. Anastasia served as an Adjunct Faculty in Piano and Chamber Music at the Hartt School and is currently on faculty of the New England Conservatory in Boston.

“For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I’m happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia Seifetdinova was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone...” – New York Concert Review, 2006
