Dmitri Shostakovich

Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57

Mieczyslaw Samuilovich Weinberg

Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 18


Matthias Kirschnereit (Piano)

Szymanowski Quartet

Shostakovich and Weinberg admired each other, Weinberg was not – as often assumed in the past – an imitator of Shostakovich. Weinberg’s music is completely independent, emotionally profound and inspired by a melodic gift that one seeks in vain in Shostakovich. Their complementarity is beautifully illustrated by the present piano quintets: superficially they have some similarities – both are in five movements and in a minor key – but musically they are otherwise very different: Weinberg’s op. 18 is monumental and carried by a dissolute narrative gesture, while Shostakovich refers to baroque and classical forms and comes across as more lyrical.
