Messiaen: 3 Melodies, Harawi

Album Summary

>Messiaen, Olivier : Harawi
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Messiaen's song cycles Trois Melodies (1930) and Harawi (1945) were both inspired by the loss of a loved one: the Melodies are a memorial to his mother who had died three years previously and Harawi was written shortly after his wife Claire Delbos had begun to suffer from the long illness that would ultimately lead to her death. But far from resorting to misery, the shimmering beauty of Messiaen's music leaves the listener with a sense of hope and transcendence.
