Ballet Based on the Viola Concerto of Sofia Gubaidulina

The compositions of Sofia Gubaidulina have not, unfortunately, been frequently chosen as ballet music – up until now. Martin Schläpfer has now embarked on a project during which an entire solo concerto by this composer will be performed. A new choreography by the Munich ballet master to Gubaidulina’s Viola Concerto will receive its world premiere on 12 April 2008 at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich. Robertas Servenikas will conduct the Bavarian State Orchestra, with the solo part played by Dietrich Cramer.
