WEINBERG, M.: Piano Works (Complete) (Brewster Franzetti) (4-CD Box Set)

Polish by birth, Mieczysław Weinberg escaped to the Soviet Union in 1939 and became a close friend and musical disciple of Shostakovich. He was a distinguished concert pianist, and piano music formed an important part of his prolific output. From pragmatic yet sophisticated pieces for children to the introspective and moving Sonatas, Weinberg’s music reflects his life in its blend of optimism, tragedy and bitter-sweet humour.
