Not merely the atmosphere, but also the various references suggest that Weinberg’s music – including his String Quartets Nos. 8, 9 and 10 – comes from the mind of someone who suffered because of the tragic fate of his family and missed the lost homeland where he had spent 'the best and happiest years' of his life, as he confessed many years later to an interlocutor from Poland. These three works – Opp. 66, 80 and 85 – were composed in a period when he lived off memories, which is also evident in his choice of texts for his vocal works. His Symphony No. 6 Op. 79 sets Jewish and Russian poems about the war, while in The Diary of Love Op. 87 he uses texts by Stanislaw Wygodzki which lament the death of the poet’s daughter in Auschwitz.
