The BBC Symphony Orchestra's 2007 January Composer Weekend focuses on the music of Sofia Gubaidulina (left). A Journey of the Soul celebrates the remarkable composer in a weekend of orchestral, choral and chamber music, films and talks, including the chance to hear the composer in conversation. The dates are January 14 to 17, and the ten events include performances of Gubaidulina's complete string quartets, and Valery Gergiev conducting the London Symphony Orchestra in three of the composer's orchestral works. Full programmes via this link. More details from the BBC website, including downloads of Gubaidulina's music.
