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.

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