Format:Audio CD
This CD contains rare early pieces by Messiaen, some of which I have heard before. The "Trois Melodies"(1930)seemed "thin" to me. Never the less, every note seemed spot on. The same could be said of "La Mort Du Nombre". But how good it is to have performances that will not deter people from listening to Messiaen simply because they are ineptly performed. The recording of the "Vocalise" is important because it was re-used, most beautifully, by Messiaen near the end of his life in his "Concert a Quatre". I was not looking forward to listening to the "Theme et Variations" because the performers I had heard previously were obviously struggling with the notes. On this CD, however, they were in full command of their material and the full drama of the piece was revealed to me. So far, all of the pieces I have mentioned have used typically Messiaen melodies and harmonies but their rhetoric is largely of the nineteenth century. Not so with "Chants de Terre et de Ciel" (1938). Here the rhetoric is Messian's own. Once again the performers were in full command and the beauty of each song was wonderfully revealed. All praise to Suzie Leblanc (soprano), Lawrence Wiliford (tenor), Laura Andriani (violin) and Robert Kortgaard (piano). If you need to know, Messiaen regarded the "Vocalise" and "Theme et Vatiations" as characteristic of his style and the "Chants de Terre et de Ciel" as very characteristic. This recording was financed by the Canadian government. Thank you, Canada.
