Konsert med verk av Sofija Gubajdulina, framförda av holländska New European Ensemble.
Sofija Gubajdulina - Repentance (2008) för cello, kontrabas och tre gitarrer
Sofija Gubajdulina - Sotto Voce (2010/13) för viola, kontrabas och två gitarrer
The Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina is one of the prominent musical voices of the past half a century. Her works are well loved worldwide for their introspective spirituality and innate sense of drama and development. The New European Ensemble presents two of her recent chamber works Sotto Voce (2010) and Repentence (2008). The guitar and double bass are among her favourite instruments and are featured prominently in both works.
Sotto Voce for viola, bass and two guitars is built out of quasi-improvisatory materials derived from the interval of a minor second that traverses a wide range of textures.
Repentence for cello, double bass and three guitars is a kind of cello concerto, with virtuosic and melodic cello writing supported by the rich harmonic chordal material in the guitars.

The New European Ensemble was founded in 2008 in the Netherlands by dedicated and passionate musicians from across Europe. The ensemble has built up a national and international reputation for imaginative programming, ‘great enthusiasm’ (Nutida Musik) and ‘excellent performances’ (de Volkskrant). The musicians regularly tour internationally. Some of today’s leading composers like Kaija Saariaho and Magnus Lindberg enjoy working with the group. In 2018 Sofia Gubaidulina will be featured.
Konserten arrangeras i samarbete mellan KDM, Samtida musik och Svensk Musikvår.
