Weinberg’s final completed orchestral piece is the 1991 Symphony No. 21, subtitled “Kaddish”. The extensive work, made up of six sections, reveals the composer’s human and artistic affinity to Shostakovich and may be defined as an elegy teeming with desire for life, and expressing unfathomable agony and everlasting hope. Weinberg dedicated Symphony No. 21, “Kaddish”, to the victims of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising against the Nazis in 1943. The performance at the National Theatre marks the Czech premiere of this extraordinary work.
