The two volumes of Messiaen Perspectives convey the growing understanding of his deep and varied interconnections with his cultural milieux. Messiaen Perspectives 1: Sources and Influences examines the genesis, sources and cultural pressures that shaped Messiaen’s music. It presents many new primary sources along with performance practice insights and theological inspiration in works as diverse as Visions de l’Amen, Harawi, Timbres-durées and the Méditations. The book includes an examination of the impact of one of the greatest influences upon Messiaen, Yvonne Loriod.
