Quote from: San Antonio on November 08, 2017, 07:32:02 AMWeinberg is indeed a great composer, but I am not sure if he would want to be considered a Russian composer. As a Polish Jew, he was not considered Russian by Russians and was the victim of anti-Semitism while living there (not by Shostakovich, who was his friend and advocate/supporter). A friend of mine said that he had to come to the US to be called Russian; there he was Jew.But I guess for the purposes of this thread, it is not objectionable for Weinberg to be a Russian composer.
Quote from: Mirror Image on November 08, 2017, 07:37:07 AMSometimes the whole 'what is this composer's nationality' game gets a bit tiring. I've suggested that Honegger was a French composer, but he's recognized as a Swiss composer since his parents were, but he lived in France most of his life, so I've given up battling with other people over this.
