In lieu of the Chamber Series performance with Vadim Gluzman previously scheduled for January 18 (postponed to April 12), the Carnegie Mellon Chamber Series will present an encore broadcast of the Clarion Quartet's performance of the Weinberg Piano Quintet, recorded in April 2019.
The Piano Quintet by Mieczysław Weinberg is arguably one of the greatest quintets of the 20th century. The Polish-born Weinberg composed many significant works and was a contemporary of Shostakovich, though less well-known. The Clarion Quartet, who are members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra dedicated to performing the works of suppressed composers, gave an impassioned performance of this incredible piece that the CMU School of Music is pleased to present as an encore.
