sofia gubaiulina, chamber pieces for bayan, organ, cello & string instruments cover\

Sofia Gubaidulina (b. 1931) was a Russian composer who pushed boundaries, tonalities, forms and sounds. This displeased the Russian academy. However, she received the support of Dmitri Shostakovich, who championed her work, thereby providing cover.

Three long tunes, 17, 17, ans 38 minutes. These chamber pieces feature the Bayan, the Russian push-button accordion, a folk instrument. According to banyan player Friedrich Lips, these works, like all works by Gubaidulina, spring from “the collision of two beginnings — good and evil.”
