2013 Weinberg performances

I'm trying to put together a list of Weinberg performances in 2013 - I'm currently restricting it to UK only (though I may write a post detailing some further afield). Having rooted around, I admittedly can't find very many. If anyone knows any more, or if you have an event you would like me to promote, please don't hesitate to get in contact (via email, or by commenting on this post).

Sunday 10th March, 19:30, Arc Ensemble, Wigmore Hall, London
Sonata for clarinet and piano Op. 28
Piano Quintet on Popular Polish Themes (UK première)
Sonata Movement in D minor (completed by David Louie)
Ben Haim
Piano Quartet (UK première)
About this concert
The ARC Ensemble enjoys a flourishing reputation for its performances of the music lost or marginalized in the tumult of the 20th century’s conflicts. The ensemble’s members are all senior faculty members of Canada’s Royal Conservatory and among the most outstanding instrumentalists in the country. Their next recording is devoted to the chamber music of the Israeli composer Paul Ben-Haim.'

Thursday 18th April, 13:10, Quatuor Danel - Martin Harris Centre, Manchester 
        'Weinberg Sonata for Two Violins, Op. 69
        Weinberg Piano Sonata No. 6, Op. 73
        Weinberg Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 6, Op. 136bis
        With Michelle Assay- Piano
Three fine chamber works by Mieczysław Weinberg – his knotty two-violin sonata, the exhilarating sixth piano sonata, and the last of his six violin and piano sonatas. The Danels’ violin virtuosi are joined by Weinberg specialist Michelle Assay.'

Friday 19th April, 19:30, Quatuor Danel - Martin Harris Centre, Manchester
'Weinberg Quartet No. 8, Op. 66
       Weinberg Quartet No. 16, Op. 130
       Weinberg Piano Trio, Op. 24
       With David Fanning- Piano
       The Quatuor Danel concludes its season with two of the highlights of the Weinberg quartet cycle, the gentle eighth and the subtle and exploratory sixteenth. The university’s Professor David Fanning, Weinberg’s biographer, joins the ensemble for the magnificent Piano Trio.'

If anyone has any details about any UK performances, please let me know and I'll update this post.
