Kaija Saariaho - Verblendungen - Jardin Secret I - Laconisme De L'Aile - ...Sah Den Vögeln (1985)

A collection of early pieces by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. I'm no expert on classical music, but my love for unrelentingly dissonant, oppressively dark music knows no genre borders.

Track listing:
2. Jardin Secret I
3. Laconisme de l'Aile
4. ...Sah den Vögeln

Night after night
Harkening to the death watches in the wall
