Pari e DispariAdd to calendar
Composer Sofia Gubaidulina (b. 1931) was educated and active in the then Soviet Union but has her roots in the current Republic of Tatarstan. She now lives in Hamburg. Her spiritual and mystic interests were hardly viable in the communist Soviet Union, but her friend and colleague Shostakovich encouraged her to go her own way.
For several decades she has been internationally established as a significant composer. She visited Gothenburg in 2008 for the world première of her percussion concerto Glorious Percussion, which was a great success. In Pari e Dispari, we carefully step into the enchanted world of Gubaidulina, where living rhythms and exotic sounds pass by so close that you can almost touch them
