Concert information

Born in Helsinki and based in Paris, Kaija Saariaho is one of modern music’s most daring and brilliant voices.

Saariaho will be joining us in person for this concert featuring two of her compositions, both written in the past decade: Earth’s Shadows, a lush yet elemental work featuring fellow Finn Jan Lehtola on the mighty Bridgewater Hall organ, and Laterna magica, a majestic sound-world of light and shade that takes its title from the autobiography of film director Ingmar Bergman.

Nestled in between are two dramatic works by another superb orchestral colourist: Hector Berlioz.
