“A handy collection of most of Sofia Gubaidulina's important works for the accordion”
“Gubaidulina's religious nature, specifically Russian Orthodox, finds expression in each of these pieces. Each also makes use of her much-loved bayan, the Russian button accordion played here with great virtuosity by Inaki Alberdi...the performer's interpretation goes, with her encouragement, well beyond the composer's notation...This is a remarkable, compelling work.”
