New Gubaidulina CD with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig on Deutsche Grammophon

“It never ceases to thrill me how Sofia Gubaidulina combines intellect, spirituality and sensuality in her works. Her music gets right under your skin,” says Gewandhauskapellmeister Andris Nelsons of the composer born in 1931. After Nelsons premiered Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto in Boston in 2017, the bond between the composer and the maestro grew ever closer. Sofia Gubaidulina has now been associated with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig for several seasons as Gewandhaus composer since 2020. On the occasion of her 90th birthday in October 2021, Andris Nelsons recorded three recent orchestral works by the composer with the famous orchestra, including the 3rd Violin Concerto “Dialogue. I and Thou” featuring Russian violinist Vadim Repin, who premiered the work referring to Martin Buber’s book “I and Thou” in 2018 in Novosibirsk.
