Mieczysław Weinberg, a composer whose extraordinarily prolix repertoire contains over five hundred works, has been resurfacing over the years after being lost to history. Born in Warsaw in 1919, Weinberg suffered the brunt of Hitler’s hatred and had to flee to the USSR, but his entire family remained behind and were subsequently killed in Nazi concentration camps. He was soon forced to flee once again, this time hiding in Uzbekistan, where he was supported by Shostakovich but was still the victim of anti-Semitic persecution. The power of Weinberg’s music was recognised by many great Soviet musicians who then spread the word in the 1960s for others to play it. He died in great poverty in Moscow, 1996, due to ill health. As the number of musicians performing his works has increased in recent years, his musical stature has now risen to the same level as that of Shostakovich and Bartók. The works recorded here are part of an edition devoted to cello concertos composed by exiled Jewish composers, under the patronage of English cellist Raphael Wallfisch. Written in 1948 and premiered by Rostropovich, the meditative, sombre and tense Cello Concerto, Op. 43, gradually integrated itself into the repertoire of a new generation of performers. The Concertino, which was composed the same year in record time, wasn’t premiered until 2017 and merges Jewish folklore with Polish folk music. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
