This brilliant arrangement by the young "Echo" award winning Florian Noack became most popular through his own recording published on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1j5IOZmh6g).
As the basis of her composition, Gubaidulina chose the lines of the Psalm 130 “From the depths, o Lord, I call to you” for the characterisation of her interlaced message. Shadowy chorale melodies are occasionally heard, but the fundamental idea of ascent remains decisive. Sharp insertions and expressive gestures, intrusive glissandi and nervous vibrati repeatedly disturb the direction of movement.
This Piano Concerto, published now for the first time in an available edition, was originally listed in the composer's catalogue of works as her first valid composition. At the time of its composition the composer was 27 years old; it is therefore no wonder that the piece is so different from the later, radical compositions of the St. Petersburg composer, in terms of notation (Ustvolskaya uses bar lines and a definite metre) and in its structure.
