The frequently tragic life of the Polish-Jewish-Russian composer Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996) did not prevent him from composing prolifically in many forms; important to both his personal life and career was his friendship with Shostakovich, which began during the Second World War and continued until the latter’s death.
