"The Weinberg retrospective at the Bregenz Festival in 2010 was centred round the world stage premiere of his opera, The Passenger, but with over twenty other works it opened a door onto the incredible richness in this forgotten composer's oeuvre. Weinberg felt compelled to compose to justify his survival from the Holocaust -- the sole member of his family to do so, and his magnificent output of symphonic and chamber music is full of the melancholy and defiance that survival engendered. We are very grateful to NEOS for enabling others to participate in the resurrection of this inspired and important composer." - David Pountney. Requiem, performed by: Elena Kelessidi, soprano. Wiener Sangerknaben, Gerald Wirth, choirmaster. Prague Philharmonic Choir, Lukas Vasilek, choirmaster. Wiener Symphoniker, Vladimir Fedoseyev, conductor. Stereo/multichannel hybrid SACD that can be played on any CD player.
