Programme Note
Kaija Saariaho Oi Kuu (1990)
OI KUU (1990), freely translated "for a moon", marks a small break between two large orchestral works, DU CRISTAL and ..À LA FUMÉE. It consists of elements which came to my mind when searching for a common denominator for bass clarinet and cello; harmony based on multiphonies of the clarinet; the multiphonies and colour transformations of the cello; similar and different articulations; different colours in the same register.

OI KUU was written at the request of Kari Kriikku and Anssi Karkttunen and is dedicated to them.
