London’s chamber music hub announced today that it will programme the 17 string quartets of Mieczysław Weinberg over 11 concerts in the next two seasons. The works will be played by the Danel Quartet and programmed alongside the quartets of Weinberg’s close friend, Dmitri Shostakovich.
The cycle was recently performed at a Weinberg symposium at Manchester University.
Well done, Wigmore Hall!
