Saariaho | Debussy
An ensemble of outstanding soloists plays two new works of chamber music by Kaija Saariaho from Finland, one of the most important female composers of our times. "Je sens un deuxième Coeur" lives from reminiscences of her Troubadour opera "L’amour de loin"; "Terrestre" is a counterpart to the 'celestial' piece "Orion" for full orchestra.
Also from Finland, and also influenced by the French impressionist chamber music tradition, is the new work for guitar by Magnus Lindberg.
Two late sonatas by Claude Debussy complete the programme.
Je sens un deuxième cœur
Manuel de Falla
Le Tombeau de Claude Debussy
Mano a mano für Gitarre Solo
Commissioned by the Turku Festival and Berliner Festspiele
Sonata for Flute, Harp and Viola
Sonata for Violoncello and Piano
