• Kaija Saariaho on Her From the Grammar of Dreams

    Here, Carnegie Hall's 2011–2012 composer-in-residence Kaija Saariaho explains this concept as the inspiration for her From the Grammar of Dreams—which will be performed during her March 5 Making Music concert—and reveals the links between the piece and Sylvia Plath's life and novel The Bell Jar.
