Kaija Saariaho: Prisma; Private Gardens, New Music. Although this band's second album "You Name It" is well produced, performed, and even written, there's not a moment here where Prisma breaks free from that influence. Out of context, this is a talented act with some great sludgy art rock to offer, it's just a shame that they don't explore their own territory.
The Ondine disc PRIVATE GARDENS collects four works, all played by their dedicatees, which epitomize the work of Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho in the 1990s. Lohn" was written with Dawn Upshaw in mind like many of Saariaho's vocal works, as "Pres" was dedicated to cellist Anssi Karttunen like most of her cello works, and all works use electronics.
