Notes & Reviews:

Following two albums devoted to the chamber music of Russian composer Alfred Schnittke, the Molinari Quartet now plunges into the fascinating world of Sofia Gubaidulina, a Russian-Tatar composer and a remarkable figure in contemporary music. Accompanied by pianist Louise Bessette, the Molinari Quartet plays Gubaidulina's Quintet for piano, composed in 1957, when she was still a student. Also on the program are her complete string quartets, composed between 1970 and 1993; the string trio composed in 1988; her Reflections on the theme B-A-C-H, a short piece for string quartet in homage to Bach; and Freue Dich!, a sonata for violin and cello.
