Messiaen Et Autour De Messiaen For Onde Martenot and Piano [coll] – [Rer Megacorp]

Cousin Mary   9/30/2009   A Library, CD

Here is an opportunity to hear the onde martenot ??? an early electronic instrument with a sound of its own, sometimes reminiscent of a sitar or a theremin. (Good notes in the liner about this instrument.) These compositions are absolutely exquisite ??? very good pairing of a piano with the martenot ??? some are somber, others minimal, others suggest impressionist music.

Unearthly beauty, unlike anything else ??? will appeal to both modern classical and electronic music fans.

Pronunciations:
– onde martenot (owned mahr-te-noh)
– Olivier Messiaen (oh-LEE-vyay mess-YAHNH)
– Carpentier (Car-pon-tee-ay)
