Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate Sofia Gubaidulina's 75th birthday, Wergo offers this new CD of the composer's chamber music. Joining Julius Berger and Stefan Hussong, two well-known interpreters of new music, are Sofia Gubaidulina and her colleague, Viktor Suslin. In 'Am Rande des Abgrunds,' Gubaidulina and Suslin play aquaphones - instruments which resemble water-filled censers with strange decorations. Their sound is rich in overtones and quite unusual, and contrasts sharply with the shimmering sound of the strings.
