The Cleveland Orchestra – Franz Welser-Möst
The Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, who lives in Paris, wrote her orchestral triptych “Orion” specifically for The Cleveland Orchestra. They have performed it on a number of occasions to great critical acclaim. The combination of “Orion” with Claude Debussy’s “La Mer” is well chosen. The French composer believed that nature was the best teacher that artists could have. This symphonic poem is creative proof of his theory.
