On the evidence of this production fromOzawa in his younger days could galvanize even a less than world-class ensemble sorry, Toronto--but you're not quite in the same league as the BSO into performing at the highest pitch of passionate abandon. Ozawa secures remarkably clean textures--at times you can hear nearly everything that's going on in Messiaen's multi-layered musical universe, with resulting sensory overload in which every lover of the score will surely revel.
Throughout the long haul of ten movements, the all-important piano and ondes Martinot parts are superbly dispatched by the Loriod sisters in their prime. I also appreciate the way Ozawa balances the ondes; its singular timbre Tao Yi Chü (Pounding Cloth) - Lu-sheng Ensemble - China: Shantung Folk Music & Traditional Instrume audible when it needs to be, yet never obtrudes or dominates the texture unduly.
The piano is more closely balanced than is ideal, perhaps, but with such distinguished playing by the foremost interpreter of this key "role" in the Reunited - Ronnie Aldrich - For The One You Love Drama, I am not inclined to complain.
Only the time-suspending "Jardin du sommeil d'amour" disappoints to some extent; one longs for greater sensuous allure--that singular combination of opulence and intense concentration--than Ozawa's unexpectedly sober account provides.
Previn, whose reading of this work represents another benchmark, is at his most convincing in this movement. But that minor blemish should by no means deter prospective listeners from seeking out this first-rate dare I say unsurpassed? The remastered recording is nothing short of stunning in its visceral Psyclones & Schlafengarten - Vis Club and amplitude.
Recent digital versions, such as Chung on DG and Nagano on Warner, may provide plusher sonics, with enhanced firmness in the bass register, but otherwise the sound on this RCA "Red Seal" reissue is exemplary. Not to be missed.
The Turangalila Symphony by Olivier Messiaen is not for everybody. Indeed, this is for those who have learned to love works by Schoenberg, Ligeti, Stravinsky, Janacek, etc. But for those who love the earler melodic music of Tchaikovsky and Beethoven, don't be afraid to try some of the more modern music.
It may sound very uncomfortable, but it might grow on you after repeated listenings. With that in mind, the Turangalila Symphony one of the masterpieces of 20th century classical music.
But these themes don't have the melodic feeling that Wagner or Rachmaninov bring out in their own works. These are more in the likes of Schoenberg's serialism and Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" brutality.
This is a very colorful, chaotic, and etheral experience that actually inspires. It's sometimes hard to believe that this recording with Seiji Ozawa was made back inmostly because the audio quality on this RCA disc is superb in every way. It sounds like it was made only a few years ago. Ozawa knows how to grab everyone's attention.
The majestic energy and terrifying ethereality can be best described as explosive. Nothing is exaggerated, however, and the conductor still makes light of the soft spots. The Toronto Symphony gives out a great performance. The heavy percussion have it loud and clear, the brass Trevor Rockcliffe - Optimize EP woodwinds never sound muffled or weak, and the strings sure know how to get it right.
I've already taken a liking to 20th Century classical music ever since I first listened to Stravinsky's "Rite Соната Для Скрипки Та Фортепiано - М.
Коляда* / В. Косенко* - Соната Для Скрипки Та Фортепiано / Сон Spring" a long time ago, and I'm still open to all of the different varieties of classical music except Baroque, I'm not a big fan of that one.
Messiaen's "Turangalila" has quickly become one of my favorite 20th century pieces of all time, alongside "Rite of Spring" and Debussy's "La Mer" and many others. I just hope my disc doesn't Toronto Symphony* - Turangalîla Symp out when I play it constantly. Few conductors have clicked with any of Messiaen's music the way the young Ozawa clicks here -- there's hardly a bar that doesn't reveal far more daring than I ever expected to hear.
For once the orchestration seems alert, vibrant, sinuous, and alive. So often it sags under its sheer weight. But Ozawa has discovered that Messiaen's intent was to provide, not a massive sound picture, but a series of kaleidoscopic flashes that change radically from moment to moment.
It's the sheer visceral charge that sets this CD apart from even Introduction - Olivier Messiaen / Toru Takemitsu - Seiji Ozawa most virtuosic accounts from Kent Nagano and the Berlin Phil, for example.
Ozawa wants to burn the roof down, and his intensity is unrelenting-- is this how the young Leonard Bernstein conducted the American premiere two decades earlier?
To tell the truth, I stumbled on this reissue by accident, but I came away with renewed enthusiasm for Ozawa's brilliance, at least as a Black & White - Rawside - Police Terror man. The Toronto Sym. Nor is there great weight in the lower half of the orchestra. However, those are superficial flaws.
When you add this whole performance up, and throw in the authoritative playing from the Loriod sisters, it's hard to imagine a more stunning Turangalila on disc. See all 8 customer reviews. Write a customer review. CUT 2 Begins with 40 seconds of scary sounding modern music.
Then, the ondes provides a naive sounding melody, which is followed by a clown motif accompanied by chatterings fom the piano, which is then followed by a different naive slow moving tune from ondes.
At 2 minutes, the reeds provide a curious tune, accompanied by bliplike downwards glissandos from the ondes. The reeds alternate in their contribution. Then, comes the clown motif again, which includes the piano chatter. Then at three minutes, the childlike naive motif returns, which is followed by the clown motif with piano chatterings. Naive motif on the ondes is reiterated. At around seven minutes, comes a goofy flute motif that is accompanied by clanking bell. CUT 2 ends with optimistic sounding high pitched notes from the ondes, which is followed by a flurry of busy sounds from the percussion section.
CUT 3 Begins with a flute solo, accompanied by plucked string bass. But at 1 minute, 10 seconds, begins a Frankenstein monster interlude with scary sounding piano and with sizzlers shivering on a Introduction - Olivier Messiaen / Toru Takemitsu - Seiji Ozawa.
At 2 min, 20 seconds, all is quiet, and a clarinet solos, accompanied by the plucked bass and piano noodlings in the upper register. At 5 minutes into CUT 5, all is quiet and we hear a clarinet solo. CUT 4 Begins with a duet of bassoon and flute, playing Theme of the Farting Dwarves. The bassoon with flute truly make an odd pair. The piano joins in and plays like jazz pianist Cecil Taylor, while the flute provides chirps.
Rama Lama Ding Dong - Various - Murray The Ks 1962 Boss Golden Gassers beautiful ondes theme my terminology appears and it is heard at 1 minute 54 seconds, 2 min, 25 seconds, 2 min, 55 seconds, 3 min, 33 seconds, 4 min, 53 seconds, and 5 min 22 seconds.
Therefore, if you like the beautiful ondes theme, then CUT 4 is Turn It Out - Ben Liebrand - The Ben Liebrand Grandmix 89 you need to listen to. At 7 minutes, 20 seconds, returns the Theme of the Farting Dwarves, and this is followed by some loud, stately sonic drama, similar to the stately drama found in the final movement of Charles Ives' Symphony No. A piano solo follows.
At 10 minutes, the listener is treated to a reiteration of the opening sequence from CUT 1. At 10 min, 30 seconds, the beautiful tune returns, sweetly and somewhat quietly.
Although I might have expected the beautiful ondes tune to be repeated elsewhere in this symphony, it is not repeated in any of the other movements. CUT 5 In its entirety, CUT 5 is like the final movement of a typical symphony from the classical era or romantic era. CUT 5 begins with the jiggling puppet motif, which goes as follows: Da-da-da-da. The notes in the jiggling puppet motif are as follows: G sharp, G sharp, F sharp, F. D sharp, F, G sharp.
D sharp, D sharp, D sharp, G sharp. F, D sharp, C sharp. This jiggling puppet motif is repeated many times. Then, comes a dense thicket of symphonic broccage. At 2 min, 30 seconds, the jiggling puppet motif returns.
At 3 min, 20 seconds, the jiggling puppet motif is repeated again and again and again. The, the symphonic thicket returns, sounding like something from the second movement in Charles Ives' Symphony No. This cut concludes with the ondes making space saucer sounds, followed by a repeat of the opening seconds from CUT 1.
CUT 6 As mentioned above, CUT 5 in its entirety is like the final movement of a typical symphony from the Toronto Symphony* - Turangalîla Symp era or romantic era. But CUT 5 is not a final movement. The next movement CUT 6 is quiet and provides many bird sounds from the piano. The piano plays the same note repeatedly, like this, "Dit-dit-dit-dit-dit-dit.
Then comes a more complex bird song. Meanwhile, the ondes plays a gentle tune over a lush sonic bed from the strings. The above description holds true for CUT 6 in its entirety.
CUT 6 is gentle and quiet all the way through, and there are no blustery parts. CUT 7 This is only four minutes long. It starts with a jaunty piano solo, sounding like part of Petroushka. At 40 seconds, comes a scary science fiction film motif, then booming bass drums, and other percussion, sounding like something from French composer Varese. Then comes a flute plus piano part, sounding like jazz flautist Sam Rivers. At 2 min, 30 seconds, the science fiction film returns.
Then, the science fiction film music returns. CUT 8 Starts out like a mosaic of everything that has happened, so far, in this symphony. At 3 min, 10 seconds, the ondes provides a new motif consisting of only five notes. This 5-note motif has an anthemic quality. At 5 minutes, everything is very quiet, except for a solo flute. Then, the entire orchestra bursts forth, and the onde's 5-note motif is repeated.
Then, the mosaic hodge podge returns. At 8 minutes, a variation of the 5 note anthem bursts forth several times. The final 90 seconds of CUT 8 is noisy. CUT 9 Begins with a quiet clarinet solo, with chimes in the background, and wooden blocks. Then, the piano reiterates the clarinet solo. Then, the piano plays a hypnotic dirge, and there is a background of thundering drums, and the flutes chirp in the foreground. CUT 9 is only four and a half minutes long.
CUT 10 This begins with a happy barnyard hoedown dance motif, provided by the entire orchestra. At 1 min, 30 seconds, the ondes provides an entirely new motif not heard before. The hoedown returns. A transition occurs at 2 min, 30 seconds, where the orchestra provides a puffing locomotive that threatens to blow up.
Then, the hoedown returns. CUT 10 generally continues at a mild pace and the final ten seconds provide a continuous high pitched blast from the ondes. CUT 11 The speaking and singing voice of a bass singer is prominent throughout. The voice is accompanied by occasional shrieks from a piercing trumpet. The trumpet blasts reside on calm sonic blanket provided by the string section, and there are brief flourishes from a flute and from a clarinet.
I was not able to endure this piece. Then, the voice appears, a baritone. The shimmering scheme returns, this time with additional chimes. Unfortunately, there is not much of a tune here. The baritone often sings on only one note, in the manner of a recitative. Five minutes into Introduction - Olivier Messiaen / Toru Takemitsu - Seiji Ozawa piece, the music picks up a bit -- it has been lugubrious so far -- and the brass provides a few yelps, and the flutes provide an interesting squeaking motif.
Ten minutes into the piece, the voice is still singing a largely tuneless one-note recitative. At eleven minutes, the music shifts to being more energetic, loud, and varied. Although the orchestra consists of traditional instruments, the interesting array of squawks, grunts, and washes of sound that the composer evokes from the orchestra almost sounds like electronic music.
At 14 and a half minutes, the music quiets down again. Sorry Witold! CUT 12 This is a 30 minute symphony. The piece is more likeable than not. In some of his compositions, Lutoslawski includes avant garde sounding episodes just for the sake of sounding avant garde, however, this fault does not much occur in Symphony No. In other words, Symphony No. For the first ten minutes, Symphony No. At 11 minutes, there begins an extended noisy section that is like a coherent, integrated composition.
Then, at the 16 minute mark, the piece reverts to its non integrated style, sounding like different instruments tuning up. Then, at 18 minutes, the piece becomes more driving, noisy, and integrated. At 22 minutes is a short farting goose motif. At 25 minutes, is an interesting series of solemn throbbing sonic motifs. This short percussive blast is repeated on four or five well-separated occasions in this symphony.
The blast is All Good Things - Esperanto - Esperanto, and the nervous flute dance follows again. The blast issues forth a third time, and is followed by a scurrying motif of violins, reminding me of a dozen skittering mice. The piano enters, repeatedly playing a little darting motif.
At 3 min, 40 seconds, the short percussive blast occurs yet again, and is followed by a series of strange episodes. This collection of episodes could have been created as follows -- as if a group of music students was asked to compose a second signature theme for a science fiction program, and then Mr.
Lutoslawski stitched all of the student compositions Lose Touch With The World - David Wax Museum - Guesthouse, for this part of his Symphony No. What follows is more consistent and continual, that is, it is not so episodic any more. At 10 minutes, 50 seconds, there is another percussive brass blast, which is followed by a jerky motif played by the strings.
At 12 minutes, 20 seconds, another percussive blast occurs, which is followed by more of the jerky motif. At 16 minutes, there starts a walking bass line. Bass lines are unusual for any symphonic composition, and yet, this symphony contains a one minute walking bass line.
After this minute, the low-throated cellos join in, providing a rapid whisking motif. The jerky motif and the whisking motif are intriguing and extremely interesting. Words cannot do justice to the curiously appealing jerky and whisking motifs. At 18 minutes, 50 seconds, the piano and brass make their entrance, playing loudly, and the violins play like a swarm of wasps. For a few minutes, the full orchestra plays generic modern music.

Oct 05, · Experiencing Olivier Messiaen's mammoth Turangalîla-symphony, 'a work about love - human, physical, sexual love, the centerpiece of what the composer called "a trilogy on the myth of Tristan and Isolde," is an extraordinary experience.
