Sofia Gubaidulina’s distinguished career and her 80th anniversary are celebrated with this world première recording of Fachwerk. Recorded here by its acclaimed dedicatee Geir Draugsvoll and in the presence of the composer, this dramatic but also magical work is inspired by a fascination with architectural styles of timber framing. The bayan is a distinctively Russian variant of the accordion and is an essential feature of this piece, also giving a special character to the subtle poetry and textures of Silenzio.

BBC Music Magazine

March 2012


“[Fachwerk] is a wise and magical work, Gubaidulina at her most shamanic. Her characteristically exploratory attitude to sound and texture here engenders a spellbindingly poetic fantasy...A marvellous disc.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2011

“Gubaidulina's fine ear and skill with subtly arranged and contrasted forms maintain interest in a piece lasting over half an hour, even if this is gentle and contemplative rather than in any way dramatic....[Silenzio] are very attentively performed pieces, Geir Draugsvill's bayan blending subtly with the violin and cello.”
