Sofia Gubaidulina (b. 1931) has earned her place among the great living composers. Her singular sound is characterized by a love of unusual sonorities and a deep-seated belief in the mystical properties of music. Quietly encouraged by Shostakovich to boldly pursue what the Soviet establishment perceived as the “wrong course” musically, she fled to Germany, where she cultivated her passion for the avant-garde. This programher second Portrait at Millertraces her evolution before and after her relocation to Hamburg, with several solo works as well as larger spiritual tours-de-force.
