Sofa Symphony; The Music of Kaija Saariaho
Thurles, Co. Tipperary
20 May 2021
“The Sofa Symphony” is a live online ‘Listening Party’ at The Source Arts Centre where music lovers can listen to great works of classical music and in real-time share their reactions and comments with other music lovers.

The composer Kaija Saariaho (b. 1952) is one of the most wide-ranging and important composers known today. Her music combines fascinating and complex orchestral timbres with innovative electronics to create whole new sound worlds that are both immediate and extra ordinary.

From her first studies in her native Finland through her work in ‘Spectral Music’ at the Influential IRCAM Institute in the Centre Pompidou, Paris, her work opens new possibilities for the way in which acoustic and electronic music can combine to create until now unimagined sounds.
