Sofia Gubaidulina 90

Sofia Gubaidulina is one of the most important Russian composers of our time.
She lives in Moscow and, together with Schnittke, Denisov and Silvestrov, she is now regarded worldwide as one of the leading representatives of New Music. She visited Japan in 1989 and 1990, where her compositions are highly regarded. She has written many film scores, as well as the better known works such as “Offertorium” Concerto for violin and “Seen Words” for violoncello, bayan and strings, etc. It is evident from these titles that religion is an important aspect of her serious musical work; however, it is interesting that this manifests itself in a different way from composers such as Messiaen or Pärt.
On March 24, 2021, Sofia Gubaidulina celebrates his 90th birthday – congratulations!
