Description
For solo Cello.

'The title evokes the two gestures which are at the origin of the work: on the one hand the pattern which I call 'spinning tops' turning around on the one spot or undergoing changes, and on theother,timeless moments, centred on the sound colour and texture.

The entire piece unfolds either around or between these two gestures. I chose to re-tune the instrument in order to personalise the harmonic writing: the fifthsarereplaced by structures favouring major sixths and minor thirds.

Challenged by this scodatura, the sonority of Spins and Spells reminds me of the music and the instrumental colours of another age, far older than thoseofthe cello that we know, although seen and transformed again through my own universe.' - Kaija Saariaho
