Notes & Reviews:

Ondine releases the long-awaited second instalment of Kaija Saariaho's (b. 1958) chamber works with the award-winning Meta4 string quartet. The recording also includes three chamber music songs together with soprano Pia Freund. Kaija Saariaho (b. 1958) is one of the most important Finnish contemporary composers. She is equally known for her operas, the oratorio La Passion de Simone, orchestral works and concertos and also for rich small-scale works. Saariaho's instrumental style is particularly richly manifested in her works for strings, where she makes use of a variety of playing techniques.
