Messiaen Des canyons aux étoiles …
An epic hymn to the wonders of the natural world. A cosmic journey from the depths of the Earth to the stars, heaven – and beyond.
Messiaen’s mystical celebration of the breathtaking natural marvels of Utah – its immense canyons, the silvery songs of its birds, the rust-red of its rocks and the azure blue of its vast skies – is an awe-inspiring experience for any listener. It’s an ecstatic celebration of creation, conveyed in music of kaleidoscopic colour and transcendental power.
Pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard – International Festival Artist in Residence – is a former student of Messiaen and his wife, pianist Yvonne Loriod, and there’s no more authoritative interpreter of Messiaen’s visionary creations.
He joins Edinburgh’s own Scottish Chamber Orchestra and respected conductor Matthias Pintscher for this overwhelming work of praise, wonder and serene contemplation.
