Музыкальный альбом классической музыки.
As part of the 100th anniversary celebration of Messiaen, DG is releasing an all-new recording by Messiaen master, Myung-Whun Chung. The conductor, long associated with this music, has made numerous recordings of Messiaen's works which have garnered many awards, including a Grammy® in 1995. Each of the three works on this album explores Messiaen's distinct use of color while focusing on a religious theme. A devoted Catholic, Messiaen wrote many works based on the beauty he found within religion. The Trois Petites Liturgies for piano, ondes martenot, choir and orchestra was premiered in occupied Paris in 1943, and received the highest praise by Jean Cocteau, Francis Poulenc and Arthur Honegger among others. With the aim of bringing "a kind of organized act of praise into the concert room" Messiaen created one of his most colorful and enduring works at this time--he himself described the music as "nothing but an act of love." Couleurs de la cité céleste combines the composer's love of birdsong and faith in one stunning piece. With the sounds of birds from New Zealand, Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and Canada, Messiaen achieved a kaleidoscopic range of colors and sounds. The final work, Hymne pour grand orchestre, is an exercise in mysticism and religious fervor painted in a bold musical language.
