Released: Oct 2006
Label: RCA Red Seal
It's hard to believe Mieczyslaw Weinberg's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano was written in 1945, as few Jewish composers from this moment could find a way to coax such profound and lovely melody from an instrument the way he does the clarinet in these three movements. His Jewish Songs (1944) were eerie cheers for the Red Army, but since they were settings of Yiddish-language poet Shmuel Halkin, they were never printed or performed. All are performed with dark brilliance by Canada's Arc Ensemble.
