Gubaidulina Festival in Yerevan

The 11th “Perspectives XXI” International Music Festival will be held during the second week of March 2010, this year dedicated to the composer Sofia Gubaidulina after having presented portraits of Krzysztof Penderecki and Rodion Shchedrin during the past years. The artistic director of this festival is David Geringas, who will also appear as cellist and conductor in two concerts. Two chamber concerts and a symphony concert have been planned. Almost all the works of Gubaidulina will thus be performed for the first time in Armenia. The interpreters will include the cellist Nicolas Altstaedt, the bayan player Geir Draugsvoll from Norway who recently performed the world premiere of Gubaidulina’s bayan concerto “Fachwerk” (Half-Timbered Construction) and the Latvian violist Ula Uljona. The composer will personally travel to Yerevan and meet with the Armenian Minister of Culture and young composers of the country.
