Music Millennium

Trio Khnopff writes of this new release: "Weinberg's Trio was one of the first big pieces we played together, and it has remained a unanimous favorite. The huge emotional spectrum, the quality and originality of the writing, the instrumental challenge, the composer himself (a young man facing the greatest personal and societal challenges) - this all comes together in his Trio to create a work that resonates deeply with us and that has been something of a constant companion. The idea of dedicating our first album to Weinberg, and more precisely to the pivotal time around 1945, felt like a natural one. His works from this time are extremely diverse: the Trio is monumental in breadth and emotional impact; the cello sonata seems to quote the entire history of music in twenty minutes (from the baroque to the jazz age!); the Songs Without Words and sincere and beautiful in their simplicity; and the Rhapsody showcases Weinberg's instrumental inventiveness by way of great violinistic virtuosity. Furthermore the Two Songs without Words, unpublished to this date, are here recorded as a world premiere."
