Stations of the Sun: Kaija Saariaho's Changing Light
On the evening of Friday June 21 as the sun shines longest on our northern hemisphere, new music will burst from Dundalk
Louth Contemporary Music Society's Stations of the Sun opens with Kaija Saariaho's first visit to Ireland.
The path begins with music by the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. Internationally esteemed for her sonic imagination and expressive power, Saariaho works with contemporary digital means and ancient scales to create dreamlike music, loaded with a strong feeling for nature and with primal human emotion. In Dundalk, vocal and instrumental pieces from throughout her career will be performed by musicians including Aliisa Neige Barrière, Jakob Kullberg, Camilla Hoitenga and Raphaële Kennedy with whom she collaborates closely.
