Overview

Anne-Sophie Mutter

Anne-Sophie Mutter

SOFIA GUBAIDULINA In tempus praesens*
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No 10

Valery Gergiev conductor
Anne-Sophie Mutter violin*
London Symphony Orchestra

‘Only in sleep, religious experience and art are we able to experience lasting present time.’ So says Sofia Gubaidulina whose violin concerto, In tempus praesens, revels in the musical moment – ethereal, transient and beautiful. As her mentor, Shostakovich encouraged Gubaidulina to forge her own musical language, despite elements being deemed ‘irresponsible’ by Soviet Russia; his Tenth Symphony displays similar defiance, punching its way through to a brazen and exhilarating end.
