  Gubaidulina, Sofia (1931-)

Russian. Born in Christopol and educated at the Kazan Conservatory. Her compositions are influenced by certain native melodies and sounds, such as Russian, Caucasian, and Asian folk music. Until 1985 she was unable to visit the west, but since then her reputation has spread. Her orchestral music and string quartets are most popular but her works on sacred themes such as the Seven Words featuring cello and bayan (Russian push-button accordion) are also fast becoming new classics for the new century .
Features in Contemporary Anthology of Music by Women and on the Russian Women Composers CD.
