Portrait Concert for Sofia Gubaidulina in Ireland

A Portrait Concert for Sofia Gubaidulina will be held on 1 May 2010 in Drogheda, Ireland, organised by the Louth Contemporary Music Society in cooperation with the Drogheda Arts Festival.

Alongside the cellist Ivan Monighetti, who has been engaged from Basle especially for this concert, the composer herself has also been invited. The following works will be performed at St. Peter's Church in Drogheda:

“In croce” for violoncello and bayan
”Garden of Joy and Sorrow” for flute, viola and harp
”Reflections on the Theme B-A-C-H” for string quartet
”Repentance” for violoncello, three guitars and double bass

The interpreters are: Ivan Monighetti (violoncello), Dermot Dunne (bayan), the Oriel Trio, the Heath Quartet, the Dublin Guitar Quartet and Malachy Robinson (double bass).

This portrait concert will be preceded by a presentation of the 1989 BBC film “The Fire and the Rose – The Music of Sofia Gubaidulina” made by Gerald McBurney.

In connection with this Gubaidulina Portrait, the “Repentance” interpreters will record this ensemble work in Drogheda for a CD which is planned to be issued on the occasion of the composer’s 80th birthday.
