Sofia Gubaidulina, who was born in 1931 in Chistopol on the Volga, is of Tartar stock on her father s side. She studied with Nikolai Peiko, and she received encouragement from Schostakovich in her individualistic development as a composer. For a long time her compositions provoked hostility and obstructiveness, until - owing chiefly to the intervention of Gidon Kremer - she achieved the breakthrough to the Western musical scene and became one of the most prominent figures amongst the Russian avant-garde. "Light and Dark'' is an organ piece written in 1976 as a result of experimenting with the shading of contrasting stops.

Rapid runs in night octaves are contrasted with static low-pitched chords; the quick runs blur until they are scored as glissandi; the deep chords gain the upper hand, first staccato and explosively, then in gradually widening clusters which drag the remains of the "light runs" downwards and engulf them. In this meticulously written score the harmonies follow the principle of planned progressive chromatic compression.

Alfred Schnittke was horn in 1934 in En-gels on the Volga, which at that time was the capital of the autonomous German Volga Republic. He studied privately with, among others, Philipp Herscovici, a pupil of Webern who had emigrated to Moscow, and he is now one of the contemporary Russian symphonic composers best known in the West. He is noted for his innovatory exploration of various facets of what might be termed an historically polystylistic musical idiom.

Schittke's Two Little Pieces for Organ" were written in 1981 when he was a visiting lecturer in Vienna, and were dedicated to Thomas Daniel Schlee. who gave them their first performance. Schnittke describes them as "fragments of eternity despite their brevity"; a recapitulation at the end gives them a rounded bipartite form, while their harmony is particularly contrary and rich in dissonances; now and again up to eight intervals of a minor second overlap one another.

Viktor Suslin was born in Miass, Ural, in 1942 and studied composition and piano with Nikolai Peiko and Anatoli Vedernikov at the Moscow Gnessin Institute. I le established the improvi-sational group "Astraya" with Sofia Gubaidulina and Vyacheslav Artyomov in 1975. His compositional successes, also al festivals in the West, brought animosity, prohibition, and expulsion from the association of composers. He emigrated in 1981, lives in Hamburg, and is an instructor at the Luheck Academy of Music.

"Toco A Poco II" Suslin's first organ sonata, was composed in 1978 and dedicated to Alexej Lyubimov. The work represents an attempt to surmount the terraced dynamics characteristic of Ihe organ by means of flowing transitions. Medieval Georgian choral music and a special triadic chord technique formed his points of departure. Organ stops allowing for a shift from the fifth to the triadic chord made it possible to establish this technique.

Suslin's second organ sonata, "IN MY END IS MY BEGINNING", owes its title to its retrograde structure, which also conjures up the memory of Cuillaume de Machaut and Maria Stuart. This sonata, commissioned by Peter Bares, the founder of the International Organ Week in Sinzig, was composed in 1983 and made to order for the special musical resources of Ihe famous Walcker Organ with its bells and percussion stops. The harmonic structure of the work rests on a special dodecaphonic series preferred by the composer because it likewise allows for major and minor triadic chords. In addition. Suslin brings elements of the Russian liturgy (bell ringing. Easter hymn) to the work. It was composed with the assistance of Friedemann Herz and is dedicated to him.
