Denissov in Münster

The great trio of Shostakovich successors in Russia at the end of the twentieth century is formed by Sofia Gubaidulina, Alfred Schnittke and Edison Denissov (1929-1996) The high points of Denissov’s incomparable oeuvre are, besides multi-coloured chamber music, above all the series of demanding instrumental concertos and the grand opera based on a subject of Boris Vian entitled “The Froth of the Days.” A very extensive cross-section of Denissov’s production, well worth hearing, will be presented in December 2004 in Münster.
