The Music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg

 Holocaust  Museum Houston, Rice University’s Boniuk Institute for  Religious Tolerance and DaCamera, present The Music of Mieczyslaw  Weinberg, a free performance by pianist and DaCamera Artistic Director  Sarah Rothenberg with DaCamera Young Artists


The performance will be  preceded by a panel discussion, Mieczyslaw Weinberg:  Music as Memory,   featuring Rothenberg in discussion with Houston Grand Opera music  director Patrick Summers and Boston Globe critic Jeremy  Eichler, author of the forthcoming book, Time’s Echo: War, Modern  Music, and the Soundscapes of Memory.  This panel of musical experts  will explore the fascinating life story of Polish-Russian Jewish  composer Mieczeslaw Weinberg (1919-1996), encompassing many of the  struggles and tragedies of the twentieth century, and whose recently  rediscovered compositions are finally receiving international  recognition. Weinberg’s Piano Quintet, composed in 1944, is a dramatic  and powerful testament to the historical moment in which it was  composed.


The performance and panel discussion are part of the  Boniuk Institute’s ongoing efforts to promote religious tolerance and  literacy.


This project is co-presented by  Rice University’s Boniuk Institue for Religious Tolerance, DaCamera and  Holocaust Museum Houston


Major support is provided by the Boniuk Institute and the Association for Jewish Studies Arts and Culture  Community Grant.
