Gubaidulina: Canticle of the Sun

The Canticle of the Sun is based on a 13th-century religious poem by St. Francis of Assisi thought to be perhaps the first literary work written in Italian. BBC Music Magazine reported, “…the Canticle is not so much a concerto-like conversation as a follow-my-leader mystical journey in glorification of the creator, the elements, life and eventually death…”

Performing the demanding, virtuosic cello part is the outstanding young Icelandic cellist Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir, an Affiliate Artist of Carnegie Hall, whose playing has been called “charismatic” and “riveting” by The New York Times.


演奏曲中艱深而超卓的大提琴段落的,是來自冰島的優秀青年大提琴好手Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir,她是紐約卡奈基音樂廳的特約藝術家,其演奏曾獲《紐約時報》稱許為「魅力非凡」及「引人入勝」。
