This work was commissioned by Rudolf Steiner Foundation. It is dedicated to Anssi Karttunen, who gave the first performance in Helsinki on 10th September 2000. Sept papillons was the first piece Saariaho wrote after her opera L'Amour de loin and it was partly written during the rehearsals of the opera in Salzburg. One can sense the desire to find a new world, which has nothing to do with the opera neither in style nor in language. From the metaphors of the opera which all have an eternal quality - love, yearning and death - she moved now to a metaphor of the ephemeral: butterfly. Also, from the long time-spans of the opera she moved to these seven miniatures, which each seem to be studies on a different aspect of fragile and ephemeral movement that has no beginning nor end.

Songs Include:

  • SEPT PAPILLONS

"Wow, speedy delivery. The items are in perfect shape and just what I ordered. Thank you very much. It is a pleasure to do business with your company"

-- C.B., The Villages, FL
"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."

-- L.R., San Diego, CA
"THANK YOU - The service and advice from you guys has been unparalleled. Emails answered swiftly, customer service fantastic and delivery on time. I ordered at 7pm Friday evening, delivery was made Tuesday morning. I will return to shop..."
