The afternoon concert of our Weinberg Focus Day features a singer described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘a peaches and cream soprano with a secure coloratura technique’. The versatile Ilona Domnich sings Weinberg’s Jewish Songs (1944), settings of the Soviet Yiddish poet Shmuel Halkin, in between the Second Sonata for solo violin (1967) and the Fourth Sonata for violin and piano (1947).
