Galina Ustvolskaya - Trio- Sonata- Duet

Kopatchinskaja
Description:
Chamber music by Russian composer Galina Ustvolskaya is featured on the second ECM disc by Patricia Kopatchinskaja, recently described by Strings magazine as "the most exciting violinist in the world" and winner of the 2014 Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year Award.

The unique expressiveness of the work of Galina Ustvolskaya (1919-2006) speaks to the listener with directness and nuanced layers of sound, the powerful, rhythmic stringency of the music testifying to the relentlessness of her vision. Fiercely independent, Ustvolskaya maintained that her music sounded like the work of no other composer, living or dead, and put herself outside all stylistic "schools". Her work, said Viktor Suslin, has the "narrowness of a laser beam capable of piercing metal". Its sense of concentration is sometimes ferocious. Entering this sound-world calls for a special kind of commitment and intensity.
