Notes & Reviews:

"Sofia Gubaidulina's St. John Passion is a phenomenal feat of composition. It's hard to believe that anyone could make so much from so little... The trouble is, it's all so unrelentingly bleak, the mood shifting from dread to desolation and back again. Frantic, polyphonically dense crescendos reminiscent of Ligeti's Requiem alternate with passages of black stasis, closer in mood to the anguished emptiness of late Shostakovich..." ***** -BBC Music
