Libelo

Kaija dans le miroir

Kaija Saariaho’s most loyal creative companions come together to pay tribute to the composer’s career. This exceptional concert retraces the artist’s career through some of her outstanding pieces. From Nuits, adieux (1991) to Light still and moving (2016), the range of visual metaphors of the composer who, as a child, tried to write down “yellow and nervous sounds” on a sheet of paper, is revealed. These images, both sonorous and virtual, are put into perspective here with those filmed by her friend and director Anne Grange, who has followed her over the last few years.
