MaM can confirm that recording of Chants de Terre et de Ciel will take place this summer. Further details will be confirmed in due course.
This week’s musician says:
“Studying, rehearsing and recording Chants de Terre et de Ciel provided a wonderful insight into Messiaen’s musical language. His ability to create different textures is amazing; each movement of Chants is full of surprises for all concerned – the singer, the pianist and the listener! Even though it is 80 years old, this cycle is thoroughly modern in its concept, and deserves a far greater exposure!” (Jakub Gutkowski, piano)
