Pieter Wispelwey is finally back! Few composers can be said to be 'citizens of nowhere' and yet, exactly this moniker is appropriate for Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Research on Weinberg's music is very much ongoing, and several previously unknown works have been discovered in recent years. Perhaps most surprising of these is the Cello Concertino opus 43bis. The Fantasy for cello and orchestra op.53 was written a few years later, during one of the darkest periods of Weinberg's life. The Chamber Symphony no.4 is Weinberg's final completed work. He wrote it in April-May of 1992, by which time he was housebound with the illness that would ultimately claim his life. The work is scored for string orchestra with an obligato clarinet.
