Last concert

Playing Sofía Gubaidulinas’s «Concerto for Bassoon and Low Strings (1975)» in RED CAT (Walt Disney Concert Hall)

May 15, 2011 – May 17, 2011

Sofia Gubaidulina

“One of the most admired composers now working. . . . Gubaidulina is a tightrope walker. There are no guidelines in her best music, no expectations to be dutifully fulfilled, and no barriers.” —The New York Times

Four programs present a kaleidoscopic view of a career that has brought astonishing and moving additions to musical culture. Now in her 80th year and one of the great living composers, Russia’s Sofia Gubaidulina makes a rare U.S. appearance to share an intensity unrivaled in today’s contemporary music scene. Gubaidulina’s unique artistic contribution has gently but undeniably asserted itself, and her recent compositions celebrate with ever-greater vitality her expressive mastery. Each program offers a small vision of what Gubaidulina’s output can achieve: A Sunday afternoon program pairs an animated film scored by Gubaidulina, The Cat Who Walked by Herself, with concert works written for children, but enjoyable by all. Sunday evening features works which show her fascination with the mystery of percussive sound, her adaptations of ancient musical impulses to new expressive ends, and her searing, unforgettable portrait of a soul’s journey in Concerto for bassoon and low strings. Two final programs on Monday and Tuesday include hallmark contributions to the concerto form—Introitus, for piano and chamber orchestra, and Detto II, for cello and chamber ensemble.
