For a dozen years or more, memory of him has been being restored, and his music has been returning to world stages. Until recently he could be treated as a kind of mythical Atlantis, known only to the initiated, the most meticulous researchers of 20th century musical history. Fortunately, that’s in the past. Credible traces that would confirm the existence of the lost land and its fantastic civilisation haven’t been discovered yet. But Weinberg’s works exist, and are making up for lost time. They’re gaining increasingly broad circles of performers and admirers.

So maybe comparisons to the mythical land are slightly exaggerated? Perhaps in part, but we must remember that the world he came from, the family circle that shaped him in early childhood and youth, have completely ceased to exist. Because of the brown totalitarianism of the Nazis, and also partly because of the red totalitarianism of the Soviets, this cultural space is today a mythical land, of which only a few fragments remain. We have only traces, small mementos and testimonies to memory, from which we’re painstakingly reconstructing that destroyed world.

Weinberg’s music is still at the threshold of this new, thoroughly deserved existence. Everything is still ahead of it, both the already known kind and the kind waiting for its time. After all, his output was substantial, because Weinberg was an exceptionally fertile composer and his art must certainly conceal more than one mystery.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
