This evening’s concert rounds off violinist Linus Roth’s focus on the composer Mieczysław Weinberg.

Dating from 1943, Weinberg’s Piano Trio is a relatively early work but already shows a kinship with Shostakovich, who was to prove a source of friendship and support for the rest of his life: Weinberg played the piano in the 1967 première of the Alexander Blok Romances.
