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."
