Shostakovich called him “one of the most outstanding composers of today”; but Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996) has also been called “the greatest composer you’ve (probably) never heard of”.

His life was a story of survival in the face of some of the 20th century’s profoundest horrors – and faced with tyranny, anti-semitism and war his music speaks with unflinching beauty and truth. This weekend, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla joins with one of the supreme musicians of our time – Gidon Kremer – in a centenary celebration of a shared passion, and music that demands to be heard.
