Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s works for flute were mainly conceived for the renowned soloist Alexander Korneyev. The earliest of these is the 12 Pieces from 1947, a playful series of character studies that touch on a variety of moods. Also from 1947, the recently rediscovered 5 Pieces draws on Debussy and the early string quartet Capriccio, Op. 11 for its ironic good humor. The First Flute Concerto has a genial air with klezmer influences while the Second Flute Concerto, among Weinberg’s last works, is often introspective and valedictory in mood. This is the first complete recording of Weinberg’s entire output for accompanied flute. Flutist Claudia Stein has appeared with numerous international orchestras and performed regularly in the Bayreuth Read more Festival orchestra. As a chamber musician she has appeared at major European festivals, as well as in Israel, America and Japan. She has worked as a soloist with conductors such as Pierre Boulez, Philippe Jordan and Sebastian Weigle. Read less
