Gubaidulina Commission Postponed Again

The November SFS programs featuring the Brahms Requiem were to include a new work by Sofia Gubaidulina, but owing to the composer's illness, the new work will be replaced by Schoenberg’s Five Pieces for Orchestra and Sch├╝tz’s “Ich bin ein rechter Weinstock.”  (My memory is failing me: was this work also postponed a couple of years back?)

Yes, it was, when she was here for two weeks a couple of years ago.

Thank you - that's what I thought, but I dug around for the info in the wrong places and didn't find it.
