Sacher makes another composer comfortable

The Paul Sacher Foundation, created by a Swiss conductor who married into Big Pharma, has bought up the lifetime manuscripts of the Paris-based Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho for an undisclosed amount. The collection will include personal correspondence and recordings.

Sacher, who died died in 1999, was close to composers of the Stravinsky era. His curators are now extending their remit to composers born after 1950.
