About this product
- DescriptionRussian composer Sofia Gubaidulina (1931- ) has achieved international acclaim for her unique musical oeuvre which draws on Eastern and Western musical traditions and reflects a deep-rooted belief in the mystical and religious qualities of music. Kurtz's biography of Gubaidulina is the first in any language. Based on her papers and extensive interviews with Gubaidulina, her colleagues, and family, the book places her life and the evolution of her work within the broader cultural and political context of the post-Stalin Soviet Union. For the English edition, the text has been revised and updated and a chrology of Gubaidulina's life and a complete list of her works have been added.
- Author BiographyMichael Kurtz is currently working on a retrospective view of 20th-century music presented in biographical portraits of selected composers.
