From The Canyons To The Stars, Part 3 for Solo Piano, Horn, and Xylorimba by Olivier Messiaen

Series: Leduc

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc

Format: Softcover

Composer: Olivier Messiaen

“Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony, melodies and his passion for ornithology, From the Canyons to the Stars is no exception to the composer’s popular, distinctive style. First performed in 1974, From the Canyons to the Stars 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. From the Canyons to the Stars is essential to advanced orchestras and soloists seeking to address a modern and varied performance work.”
