Kaija Saariaho‘s lyric works represent a rich and expressive musical universe. The poetry of her writing and the tapestry of sounds she conjures between vocal and instrumental lines give her music a truly unique quality.

This concert of her work will follow a five-day Masterclass during which Opera Fuoco’s Young Artists will have worked intensely with both the composer herself and conductor David Stern.  It offers an exceptional opportunity for artists and audience alike to enter into the creative imagination of one of the leading composers of our time and to witness the live interpretation of works that will become part of the 21st century’s vocal canon. 
Kaija Saariaho will be present.  A coupe de champagne will follow the concert.
