2005 Deutsche Grammophon release

L'Amour de Loin is one of Kaija Saariaho's most impressive scores--powerful, evocative, and challenging. Even at its most modernist--and there is a preponderance of such, from the gripping Penderecki-style opening, to the terror-laden chords that return at critical moments, much in the manner of Poul Ruders' A Handmaid's Tale--the music remains accessible, and at times quite lyrical and impassioned. This is due largely to the basically tonal character of the vocal writing, as well as to Saariaho's interweaving elements of Debussy, Messiaen, and even French baroque.
