GRAMOPHONE EDITOR'S CHOICE

"Kaija Saariaho is the Finnish composer, alongside Magnus Lindberg, who most excites me at present. Like her fellow countryman, she finds textures that feel absolutely fresh, vibrant and full of colour. Her journeys of imagination here are gripping. And it's good to see such high-profile performers in new music - perhaps especially the sublime Karita Mattila."
(Gramophone)

5 AV 6 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SVENSKA DAGBLADET

"En kombination av avantgardistisk spets och färgskimrande omedelbarhet borgar för lustfyllt lyssnande."
(Landskrona-Posten)

"Violoncell, flöjt och kvinnlig sångröst återkommer ofta i Kaija Saariahos musik. I dubbelkonserten ­Mirage (2007) används till och med cello och sopran som solistduo. Texten, av den mexikanska shamanen María Sabina, talar om en helig örnkvinna. Karita Mattilas extatiska sopran kompletteras raffinerat av Anssi Karttunens cello. Notes on light (2006), för ­cello och orkester, anspelar på T S Eliots The Waste Land. I fem scener reflekterar och absorberar orkestern Karttunens ljusa, brinnade cello­klanger. Den mytiske jägarens energi kontrasteras mot en kosmisk orörlighet i det tresatsiga orkesterverket Orion (2002). Lysande framföranden alltigenom."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

Soprano Karita Mattila and female composer Kaija Saariaho share not only popular star status in the classical musical world (with respective awards by Musical America as Composer of the Year 2008 and as Musician of the Year 2005), but also a fruitful musical collaboration and friendship. Its latest output - after the acclaimed song cycle Quatre Instants in 2006 - is Mirage, the setting of a trance-induced incantation text by the Mexican healer María Sabína (1894-1985). This recording features the work's world première performance in Paris, France on March 13, 2008. The ecstatic 15-minute piece is written for the unprecedented combination of soprano, cello and orchestra, featuring cellist Anssi Karttunen and the Orchestre de Paris Orchestre de Paris under its music director Christoph Eschenbach. Mr. Eschenbach - who for the Ondine label also records together with The Philadelphia Orchestra - is known as one of the top champions of contemporary music among the world's leading conductors. The Times raved about Mirage, stating, "Few singers other than Mattila will be able to hurl the voice into such high ecstasy, bend its tones and express the entire transformation in such racked yet exultant body language. (...) this is a small but important work in Saariaho's increasingly fruitful development." Anssi Karttunen performs also in Notes on Light, a cello concerto which Saariaho wrote for him in 2006. The CD also includes Orion, the largest orchestral work Saariaho has written to date.
