Olivier Messiaen: Traité de Rythme, de Couleur et d'Ornithologie: Books on Music

Book Only | Books on Music
Composer Olivier Messiaen
Publisher Alphonse Leduc
Instrumentation Theory

Part of the Treatise On Rhythm, Colour And Ornithology written in French by Olivier Messiaen, this seventh volume talks about modalities, sonority/colours, chord colours, modality tabs used by Messiaen, and the analysis of 'Three small Liturgies'.

This treatise depicts the full theory behind Messiaen’s compositions and how he composed music, including his conception of rhythm, his incorporation of birdsong and his relation to sound and colours.

While most composers struggle to explain their composition, Messiaen has managed to write a Treatise in 7 volumes to explain all the important aspects of his work.

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer who was passionate about Ornithology 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 limited transposition, its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsong, including the 'Bird Catalogue' in 7 volumes
