OUT NOW | Violinist Gidon Kremer's New CD: 'Mieczyslaw Weinberg : 24 Preludes' [LISTEN]

Accentus Music has announced the release of Latvian violin virtuoso Gidon Kremer's new album: 'Mieczyslaw Weinberg: 24 Preludes'

Accentus Music has this month announced the release of Latvian violin virtuoso Gidon Kremer's new album: Mieczyslaw Weinberg: 24 Preludes.

The disc features the world premiere recording of the violin arrangements of Mieczyslaw Weinberg's (1919-1996) 24 Preludes - originally composed in the late 1960's for luminary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

''While I was young and living in Moscow, I missed the chance to meet Mieczslaw Weinberg ... I recently discovered the music of this composer and these Preludes, each a masterpiece, display his mastery and spirituality...'' Mr Kremer has told The Violin Channel.

''Originally written for Slava Rostropovich, Mieczslaw Weinberg’s voice is heard in each of the 24 pieces ... and I do hope that these personal statements of one of the most wonderful composers of the 20th Century will inspire listeners to fall in love with his music,'' he has said.
