Sheet music for Galina Ivanovna Oustvolskaia
Ustvolskaya’s works are highly spiritual in character but seldomly have the quieting effect we find with other spiritual composers, like e.g. Pärt, but rather the opposite. Her “Dies Irae” (1972–1973), for 8 double basses, piano and percussion, is a good example of the disquieting effect her music can evoke.

Even though Galina Ustvolskaya was a famous composer, she has lived a very solitary most of the time. She studied under Shostakovich (who was very impressed by her) at the Saint Petersburg conservatory, and from 1947 to 1975 she also taught at the same conservatory. She seldomly travelled abroad.
