Katowice | Silesian Quartet: 'Mieczysław Wajnberg - all string quartets - following dedications'

Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC

NOSPR 11.2.23As part of the series ‘Mieczysław Wajnberg - all string quartets - following dedications’ (17 quartets, 6 concerts, 1 performer) on the 11th of February, 2023 at 18.00, NOSPR will host another concert of the Silesian Quartet, which this time will present the composer's 4th, 6th  and 9th Quartets.

Contributing significantly to the rediscovery of Mieczysław Weinberg's music, the Silesian Quartet set itself an extremely demanding task: recording all 17 quartets of this forgotten, Polish-Jewish-Russian composer. This is only the second ensemble in the world that has managed to meet this challenge.

This season, we have the unique privilege of hearing a complete set of Mieczysław Weinberg's extraordinary quartets live, following the changes taking place in his musical language and following the trail of dedications hidden on the pages. In the upcoming concert we will be able to hear the String Quartet No. 9 Op. 20, String Quartet No. 9 Op. 80 and String Quartet No. 6, Op. 35.
