Sofia Gubaidulina (b. 1931), growing up in the Tatar Republic, bound peculiar fusion of Eastern and Western into dramatic polarities in her later work. She graduated from the Kazan' Conservatory in 1954 having studied composition and piano; she then left for Moscow, where she studied at the Conservatory with Nikolay Peyko until 1959, and then with Shebalin until 1963. On this CD also works by Anders Nilsson, Miklós Maros and Hans Kox.
The Mastercuts series is a must for all the old Funkateers still wanting to remember what is was really like back in the 70s and early 80s.The real draw on this album for me was the 7.15 full version of You're Gonna Get Next To Me.
