Description: 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 concerto has a genial air with klezmer influences while the Second, among Weinberg’s last works, is often introspective and valedictory in mood. Claudia Stein (flute).
