Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg
Ondine's new release includes works written in the last decade by one of the most important Finnish contemporary composers, Kaija Saariaho (b. 1958). Two of the works - the orchestral version of Quatre instants and Émilie Suite - feature the award-winning soprano Karen Vourc’h.
Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg is conducted by the orchestra’s new Music Director, Marko Letonja.
Émilie Suite is a 25-minute work based on Saariaho’s 80-minute monodrama Opera 'Émilie'. The Opera tells the dramatic story of a true historical character, Marquise Émilie du Châtelet (1706–1749), one of the earliest woman scientists, who was also a mathematician and a physician. The suite includes three songs and two orchestral interludes from the Opera.
