World Premiere: Sofia Gubaidulina‘s “Pilgrims” in Chicago

One of the central concert events of the year 2015 will be the world premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s new work “Pilgrims” for violin, double bass, piano and two percussionists with the Contempo Ensemble during the course of the concert “Contempo at 50: Now and Then II” in Chicago on 1 March 2015. This work was commissioned by the Serge Koussevitsky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress.

The composer has informed us in advance that her composition has a variation form that is ultimately based on a passacaglia. The interpreters are more or less like “pilgrims” embarking on a “sound procession”.
