    I am a musicologist and composer. Trying to find a good piece to study i came up on this. This is maybe the best work from the russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina. It starts with the "Musical Offer" theme from Bach. Gradually it drains you into a world of musical colours...

    . The final part is a stunning, magical, moment of music. The score (sikorski edition) is perfect in accuracy. Gubaidulina has a very interesting notation (not as others, penderecki for ex.), but i like the fact that she uses mostly standard notation to achieve a contemporary piece of music. The violin part is of extreme difficulty in some places (it is for Gidon Kremer). Overall a must buy for composers and highly recommended for music lovers.
