CLASSICAL OPUS no.19

Olivier Messiaen: “Turangalila Symphonie”

オリヴィエ・メシアン:「トゥランガラの交響曲」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 79 minutes

This glorious epitome of asymmetry is intimidating and, at first hearing, rather undecipherable.  And hence, highly rewarding.  The archivist of avian sound departed here to explore revolutionary use of reverb, percussive exoticism and Ondes Martenot.  Some modernism has lost nothing beyond its -ism.

Get ready for the action of the geyser of our blood

-submarine formation of transchromatic aeroplanes,

cellular metals numbered in

the flight of images.
