Complete Cello Works
Performed by Alexis Descharmes. "The Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho (born 1952) has lived and worked in Paris since 1982. She achieved international recognition with works that include Nymphea, a commission from the Lincoln Center for the Kronos Quartet and two linked orchestral works -- Du Cristal and ...a la fumee, premiered in 1990 and 1991 both in Helsinki and Los Angeles. On this new CD, Aeon presents Saariaho's collected works for cello -- her favorite instrument. Alexis Descharmes has participated in numerous concerts and recordings with the Ensemble InterContemporain and, in addition, is artistic director of Quaerendo invenietis, a chamber ensemble that he founded while still a student. He has recorded nearly a dozen discs for Deutsche Grammophon, Accord and Aeon."
