WEINBERG, M.: Symphony No. 8, Op. 83, "Tveti Pol'shi", "Kwiaty Polskie" (Polish Flowers) (Dobrowolska, Marciniec, Bartminski, Wit)

A product of Mieczysław Weinberg’s remarkable burst of creativity in the 1960s, the Eighth Symphony uses texts drawn from Julian Tuwim’s epic poem Polish Flowers which reflect on Poland’s troubled past and ominous future. Social inequities, poverty, cruelty in times of war and a final luminous vision of hope are eloquently expressed in one of Weinberg’s most personal and powerful artistic statements.
