Renaissance Influences V
Saturday 24 November 2012, 7.30 pm
St Andrews on the Terrace
Directed by Michael Stewart
Claude le Jeune and Olivier Messiaen continue the ‘Renaissance Influences’ theme. The rhythmic detail and structure found in the delightful chansons of le Jeune’s collection Le Printemps directly inspired Messiaen’s Cinq rechants, the last of his trilogy of works celebrating the myth of Tristan and Isolde. This concert acknowledges the 20th anniversary of Messiaen’s death in 1992.
This concert was part of the 2012 Subscription Series.
