Symphonic thinking dominated Mieczysław Weinberg's final decade, and these chamber symphonies are part of an interrelated sequence that reworks and cites earlier pieces. The Second Chamber Symphony draws on a string quartet from 1944, reflecting the sombre and fatalistic tone of the period. The Fourth Chamber Symphony was Weinberg's last completed work, and uses a haunting chorale melody that he once referred to as a constant presence throughout his creativity.
