The singer/poet addresses Weil not uncritically; and her own words are sounded out in whispered interpolations. Dawn Upshaw’s always seems the perfect voice and sensibility for Saariaho’s music; and Esa-Pekka Salonen, Saariaho’s colleague from their student days, is an intensely engaged and sympathetic director of his forces and of the score.

Kaija Saariaho's La Passion de Simone, an oratorio about the life and thoughts of Simone Weil for soprano solo, choir, orchestra and electronics, is now being released for the first time on CD (SACD). Performer: Dawn Upshaw. Orchestra: Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Esa-Pekka Salonen

1. Station 1: Simone, grande soeur. Station 4: Attentive a la souffrance des humains.
