Description
Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony, melodies and his passion for ornithology, his The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ for Choir, Seven soloinstruments and Orchestra is no exception to the composer's popular, distinctive style. Composed between 1965-1969, The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ is based on the account of Jesus' Transfiguration, found in theGospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. The work requires a huge 200 performers and with 14 movements, a typical performance lasts about an hour and a half. The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ incorporates Messiaen's popularcompositional techniques, such as his modes of limited transposition, and the use of birdsong. Texts are largely based on the Bible. The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ is essential to all advanced musicians seeking toexpand and vary their ensemble repertoire on a large-scale.
