GP698-701bIn this week’s podcast, Raymond Bisha introduces the 4-CD collection of the complete piano works of Mieczysław Weinberg — from teenage mazurkas written in his native Poland through to his last works for the instrument composed in Moscow. En route, Tashkent, Shostakovich and the Head of the post-Stalin KGB all play a part in the fascinating story of this displaced and somewhat forgotten composer. The boxed set from the Grand Piano label represents a significant meeting of minds between Weinberg and his distinctive creativity, pianist Alison Brewster Franzetti and her championing of his forgotten works, and Naxos in its well established role as a facilitator for such invaluable projects.
