Reviews

Kaija Saariaho, celebrating the asteroid Toutatis and its complex orbit, uses evocative textures and woodwind repetitions in ostinato patterns, much in line with Holst's technique.
Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, 10/1/2006

Kaija Saariaho's otherworldly tone poem about Toutatis, the asteroid that passes closest to Earth, is outstanding.
Peter Culshaw, Observer Music Monthly, 8/1/2006
