About this event
From the Orchesterhaus Salzburg, Austria, comes the second concert of a two-part celebration of the composer Mieczysław Weinberg, with performances featuring the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, the Stadler Quartett, and many more.
West-Eastern Divan Salzburg ("WØD") was founded in 2011 with the motto: "walking in the shoes of the other." For the second time, the cultural association presents a festival dedicated to the Polish-Jewish composer Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996). "What makes Weinberg’s legacy so inspiring," writes the musicologist and Weinberg biographer David Fanning, "is the deep humanity and the quality of the artistic imagination. Weinberg represents the search for two kinds of freedom: freedom to live and freedom to compose."Festival WØD-Weinberg 2020 takes up the idea of freedom and programmes a work by Norbert Sterk (based on a poem by Semier Insayif) as well as traditional Arabic music alongside works by Weinberg, including his String Quartets nos. 7, 8, 13, his second cello sonata, and movements from his Second Symphony and Concertino for Violin and String Orchestra.
Conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla takes part courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon.
