Coinciding with her 80th birthday, this substantial addition to Sofia Gubaidulina's discography on BIS presents two recent works by the grande dame of contemporary music. As always with this composer, the music is intimately connected to her religious and philosophical beliefs. In the violin concerto In tempus praesens the numbers 1 and 3 -- derived from the Holy Trinity -- play an important role, as well as the concept of 'Sophia', implying divine wisdom and the creative power of God. The work was premiered by Anne-Sophie Mutter at the 2007 Lucerne Festival, and belongs to the most frequently performed instrumental concertos by a living composer.
Vadim Gluzman, violin; Glorious Percussion (Anders Loguin, Anders Haag, Mika Takehara, Eirik Raude, Robyn Schulkowsky); Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, Jonathan Nott, conductor
