Programme Note
Kaija Saariaho Mirrors (1997)
Mirrors is a piece written originally for the CD-Rom Prisma dedicated to my music.
In the context of the CD-Rom, the user can build and play his own versions of Mirrors, by combining pre-defined fragments. Because written for this purpose, the piece is built in such a manner that it can be reconstructed in multiple versions. The fragments of the game are the passages separated with double bar.

The existing score is my own versions of Mirrors, but musicians are welcome to construct their versions of it. They should, anyway, try to follow the ideas I had about musical mirrors: there should be always a mirror in one or several of the following musical dimensions: rhythm, pitch, instrumental gesture or timbre.
The mirror can be horizontal, between flute and cello (bars 4-5: rhythm mirror, bar 17: gesture, etc) or vertical (bars 57-58: timbre, bars 65-66: flute gesture, cello gesture, rhythm and pitch).
