Event description
On the evening of Friday June 21 as the sun shines longest on our northern hemisphere, new music will burst from Dundalk

About this Event

The path begins with music by the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho who makes her first visit to Ireland.

I am enthusiastically looking forward to visiting Ireland for the first time, to attend the Stations of the Sun festival on 21 and 22 June 2019 by Louth Contemporary Music Society.
There will be two concerts featuring my chamber music, written over a span of 30 years. The concerts will be performed by an international group of musicians of different generations, all closely connected to my music. Kaija Saariaho, May 2019

Internationally esteemed for her sonic imagination and expressive power, Saariaho works with contemporary digital means and ancient scales to create dreamlike music, loaded with a strong feeling for nature and with primal human emotion.

In Dundalk, vocal and instrumental pieces from throughout her career will be performed by musicians including Aliisa Neige Barrière, Jakob Kullberg, Camilla Hoitenga and Raphaële Kennedy with whom she collaborates closely.
