And it is all the more a miracle when it comes to composers of the generation of Esa-Pekka Salonen, Kaija Saariaho and Magnus Lindberg, who are between 40 and 50 and are lately making a very strong impression just about everywhere. In the case of Salonen, Los Angeles has also played a significant role.
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). Esa-Pekka Salonen, especially beloved out here in Southern California where he conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1992 to 2009 (and where he still guest conducts on a regular basis), led "Helix" with that orchestra on a recent 2012 visit. I liked it and bought this recording. This CD seems, on the whole, a good introduction to his own compositions - most of which are not that well known, at least to me.

In the past few years Esa-Pekka Salonen has got his composing career back on track, after more than a decade when it was in danger of being eclipsed by his success as a conductor; all these pieces have been written since 1995. It is impossible not to detect, though, the way Salonen's parallel life has affected his own style. Compared with his early scores there is far less individuality and daring about the music here
