Kaija Saariaho Tocar
Kaija Saariaho Serenatas

The London Sinfonietta Academy Ensemble are joined by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho and broadcaster Tom Service to present a BBC Proms Plus Portrait.

In Tocar, the title of which translates, from Spanish, as 'to touch, to play', Saariaho explores 'how two instruments can touch each other'. Meanwhile, Serenatas, a collection of five small pieces, the order of which is chosen by the performers, reflects on material from two of Saariaho's orchestral works Mirage and Notes on Light.
