Could someone who knows how to pronounce "Saariaho" please post the pronunciation, maybe after the name at the beginning of the article in parentheses or something? I find the IPA versions of people's names to be very helpful.

I don't know enough for the article but heard it spoken as if it was Latin, long a in the first syllable, no audible h. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:43, 14 February 2011 (UTC)


"Saariaho was influenced by post-serialism, but she grew to find it too restrictive"

What is post-serialism in this context? I can understand the term as a chronological one, generally referring to music that came after serialism (such as minimalism, spectralism, etc.) but here the term implies a specific genre under that name. I searched for information about such a genre but couldn't find any. The quote that follows suggests it is about serialism proper, rather than "post-serialism" (whatever that may be). -- (talk) 04:43, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
