Pupils of Messiaen - /Xenakis. View record and artist details. Record and Artist Details. It was an attractive idea to put Messiaen‘s best-known pieces for unaccompanied choir alongside works by two famous pupils (in the case of Stockhausen these student works from 1950 predate his study with Messiaen by two years). Messiaen’s Cinq Rechants (1948) follows Harawi and Turangalila, sharing some of their themes, and is the last of his three works based on the Tristan legend. The composer called the cycle a song of love and said that the word ‘love’ itself was enough to guide the singers in their interpretation of his poem and the music.

A cappella works by pupils of Messiaen: what an excellent way of exploring the multiplicity of styles to be found in mid- to late 20th-century music. Dozens of notable composers went through the Messiaen class at the Paris Conservatoire, including many who are emerging only now on to the international scene. Performer: Danish National Radio Choir/Jesper Grove Jørgensen. A cappella works by pupils of Messiaen: what an excellent way of exploring the multiplicity of styles to be found in mid- to late 20th-century music. Unfortunately, what could be an extremely fruitful way of exploring diverse corners of the modern repertoire turns out to be nothing more than an extremely tenuous peg.

I have a few vocal pieces on the Pupils Of Messiaen CD. I think these are the most interesting pieces on the CD which also features a cappella works by Messiaen and Stockhausen. Sid James liked this post. The percussion works I described in my last post on this thread, the ones I heard live in concert, I would also firmly recommend those. Esp. the longer one, Pleiades. My favourite works on this set are -. Herma for piano solo - the music of different intensities brings waves crashing on the shore to mind for me.
