Olivier Messiaen: His Life & Work
Time & Location
About the Event
(Taught by Colin Andrews) Join us on for an exciting series focusing on the French composer Olivier Messiaen, one of the giants of 20th-century music. Colin Andrews, organist and scholar from Bloomington, Indiana, will guide us toward a greater understanding of Messiaen's unique musical voice, centering especially on the composer's organ music.
This course will link will the final three works in our Messiaen cycle here at Trinity, all to be played this May -- L'Ascension, Messe de la Pentecôte and Méditations sur le Mystère de la Sainte Trinité. Mr. Andrews knows these works intimately: he has recorded the complete organ works of Messiaen on the Loft label and has performed them worldwide.
