Various: Olivier Messiaen, 1908-1992. July 1, 2008timer1 min. read. This six-CD box set is a compilation of must-have recordings of the always challenging music of French avant-garde composer Olivier Messiaen. He spent his lifetime exploring fresh ways to depict colour in music, infusing everything with his own form of Christian spirituality. Most of the works on these reissued recordings are larger-scale, conducted by Reinbert de Leeuw, who led the Toronto Symphony during the Messiaen-heavy New Creations festival. I find Messiaen's chamber and solo-piano.

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) Turangalîla-Symphonie. Serialisme & Post-Serialisme Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) - Rechant IV. Tres vif. (play). Olivier Messiaen (1908 - 1992) Quatuor pour la fin du temps: II. Vocalise, pour l'ange qui annonce la fin du temps.

Olivier Messiaen, one of the most important composers of the 20th century, wrote a lot of music for the organ. Among them are 7 large cycles. Combat de la Mort et de la Vie" ( Battle between Life and Death) is part from a cycle he wrote just before WWII in 1939, called "Les Corps Glorieux" (The Transfigured Bodies). In the middle of the cycle stands "Combat de la Mort et de la Vie"

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992). This second Lenten organ post is also the second of a two-part series dedicated to the spiritual music of Olivier Messiaen, this one solely focused on the organ, with some selections featuring Messiaen himself. After showing improvisation skills on the piano Messiaen studied organ with Marcel Dupré and inherited the tradition of great French organists (Dupré had studied with Charles-Marie Widor and Louis Vierne, Vierne in turn was a pupil of César Franck).
