“[Saarinen’s] smoothness and precision of movement are impressive--- the extraordinary presence of Saarinen is fascinating, catching at each instant the light and the audience’s attention --- the presence of musicians on stage adds a dimension --- The three soloists draw evocative and unexpected sounds from their instruments, thus accompanying the descent towards sea-beds.”

“A sorrowful event in the depths of the ocean --- minimalistic but impressive --- [Vox Balaenae] haunted my mind for a long time.”
– Hämeen Sanomat, Pirjo-Liisa Niinimäki, October 13, 2011 (Finland)
Choreographer Tero Saarinen's solo, set to contemporary composer George Crumb's Vox Balaenae, is performed with Ensemble Intercontemporain (France) or Avanti! (Finland).
