Description
Composed in 1964, Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum is a religious piece by Olivier Messiaen which title means _x005F_x001A_And I wait for the resurrection of the dead_x005F_x001A_. Commissioned by André Malraux, this orchestra lasts approximately 35minutes and was written for the commemoration of the dead in the world wars. It features five movements: I. Des profondeurs de l'abîme, je crie vers toi, Seigneur: Seigneur, écoute ma voix! II. Le Christ, ressuscité des morts,ne meurt plus - la mort n'a plus sur lui d'empire. III. L'heure vient où les morts entendront la voix du Fils de Dieu... IV. Ils ressusciteront, glorieux, avec un nom nouveau -- dans le concert joyeux des étoiles et lesacclamations des fils du ciel. V. Et j'entendis la voix d'une foule immense... This is the conductor's score which includes all parts. Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French Organist and composer passionate aboutOrnithology and one of the most important composers of his century. Inspired by Japanese music, he had a very special way of composing and his work can be identified by its complexity, its diatonic aspect, its harmony with limitedtransposition, its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsongs, including the Bird Catalogue in 7 volumes and the Treatise on rhythm, colour and ornithology in 7 volumes.
