Q2 Music honours Kaija Saariaho
Kaija Saariaho is honoured at Meet the Composer season 2 – episode 7.
Meet the Composer is a podcast from Q2 Music that takes listeners into the minds and creative processes of the composers making some of the most innovative, compelling and breathtakingly beautiful music today. The show is hosted by critically-acclaimed violist Nadia Sirota and funded in part by a second successful Kickstarter campaign.
At the convergence of interview, music and production, Meet the Composer aims to show the listener who the composer is as a person, as a thinker and as an artist. The listener, in turn, gets richer context for new work than is provided by your average program note, CD liner or digital booklet, and hopefully an engaging entry point into the exciting world of new music.
