Messiaen / Yvonne Loriod / Ensemble Ars Nova / Marius Constant

Des Canyons Aux Étoiles...
1982 Japanese 2LP White Label Promo Housed In A Gatefold Cover With Obi. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. Superdisc Quality Sound! Standing As It Does Near The End Of Olivier Messiaen's Career, Des Canyons Aux Etoiles... Represents Both A Culmination Of Many Aesthetic Elements And The Melding Of Those Elements Into A Mature Style. Its Large-Scale Form Somehow Combines The Sounds Of A Highly Idiosyncratic Instrumental Ensemble Into A Compositional Whole -- Perhaps Reflecting The Unity In Diversity Found In The Striking Nature Scenes That Served As The Piece's Inspiration. Des Canyons Directly Preceded The Conception Of His Enormous Operatic Undertaking, Saint François D'Assise (1975 - 1983), Whose Scope Overshadowed The Remaining Smaller Pieces Composed Before The Composer's Death In 1992.
