World Premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina's “Labyrinth“ at the Lucerne Festival 2011

This year's "Lucerne Festival in the Summer" (10 August until 18 September 2011) will be investigating the phenomenon of the night in music. At the centre of focus are the fantasists and dreamers among composers, the mystics and masters of dark sounds.

For this occasion, Sofia Gubaidulina was commissioned by the Festival to compose a work. The result is the ensemble piece "Labyrinth" for twelve solo celli, the world premiere of which will be given on 30 August 2011 by the 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic.

The composer has dedicated her "Labyrinth" to the 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic.
