CINQ RECHANTS MESSIAEN PDF

Be the first to review this title. Notes and Editorial Reviews On the spine and front artwork of this release Messiaen gets top billing, Cinq rechants being the longest of these unaccompanied French choral works, which are presented in suavely sung performances, with excellent diction, fine intonation, and nice vocal blending. The Messiaen performance is backward looking. Rupert Huber is seemingly intent on bringing out the qualities in the piece that tie it to the earlier French choral music here, which is not only a valid but a welcome idea.

Cinq rechants, for 12 voices, I/31

That is the only word that should guide the singers in interpreting the poem and the music. Messiaen 's broad spectrum of instrumental coloration is absent; the piece is scored for twelve unaccompanied voices, soprano, alto, tenor, and bass -- three each. Using an intricately nuanced approach to rhythm, a surrealistically lyrical melodic tone, and a text his own that itself verges on music, Messiaen creates in the Cinq Rechants a rich and varied musical landscape that defies its seemingly tame performance forces. Messiaen 's text for the Cinq Rechants is an odd and evocative combination of various elements: poetic phrases in a kind of French Surrealist style, a variety of invented syllables, and some unsung percussive sounds.
