Sofia Gubaidulina at the International Weingarten Days for New Music 2010

The organisers of the International Weingarten Days for New Music have invited Sofia Gubaidulina as „Grande Dame of the International Composers’ Scene“ to their 25th festival from 22 until 24 October 2010. The composer will be present at all three days and participate in the concerts.

“Sofia Gubaidulina is considered a composer whose oeuvre moves people through its intensity, spirituality and deeply personal manner of expression. In her sacred music, in particular, she has opened up new horizons beyond the everyday experience of time.” (...) “She is considered a exceptional composer of New Music, the most important Russian composer of the present day and a pensive person whose spiritual horizon does not end with music,” according to the organisers.
