Overview

Soprano Karita Mattila and composer Kaija Saariaho share not only star status in the classical musical world, but also a fruitful musical collaboration and friendship. Their latest collabortaion is Mirage, a setting of a trance-induced incantation text by the Mexican healer María Sabína (1894-1985). This recording preserves the work’s world premiere performance in Paris on March 13, 2008. The ecstatic 15-minute piece is written for the unique combination of soprano, cello and orchestra, and features cellist Anssi Karttunen and the Orchestre de Paris under its music director Christoph Eschenbach.

Karttunen also performs in Notes on Light, a cello concerto that Saariaho wrote for him in 2006. The CD also includes Orion, the largest orchestral work Saariaho has written to date. From the Label
