This is the first of two releases of Chamber Works for Strings by Kaija Saariaho. The second will be released in 2014.
 
Kaija Saariaho is renowned across the world for her vivid orchestration. Her chamber works highlight her ability to create unique sound worlds with only a few instruments. Here she also adds live electronics to create a unique colour.
 
Meta4, formed in 2001, is one of the internationally most successful Finnish string quartets. In 2010 they received the Echo Klassik Award and in 2012 were awarded both the Record of the Year by the Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE and the Emma prize (the Finnish Grammy) for Classical Album of the Year.
 
This release is also a tribute to Kaija Saariaho who turned 60 on 14th of October 2012.
