Many of the works of Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho—"Neiges," "Petals," "Sept Papillons," "Tag des Jahrs," and others—are notable for their complex incorporation of themes from nature.

Here, Saariaho—Carnegie Hall's 2011-2012 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer's Chair—discusses how nature is represented in an abstract way in compositions like "Nymphéa."
