Books | Celeste

Catalogue No: AL25315
Composer: Olivier Messiaen
Format: Sheet Music | Score

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony, melodies and his passion for ornithology, Des Canyons Aux Étoiles... is no exception to the composer's popular, distinctive style.

First performed in 1974, Des Canyons Aux Étoiles... was inspired by the composer's visit to Utah, where he was enthralled by the birds and landscape. The work is notable for its use of modern instrument techniques and a typical performance lasts about 100 minutes. This piece also makes use of the composer's synaesthesia. Des Canyons Aux Étoiles... is essential to advanced orchestras and soloists seeking to address a modern and varied performance work.
