Schedule please note that these entries are subject to slight modification : Week 1 Sept 8 Introduction and Overview; what to expect, grading, who is in the class? What is sound? What makes sound? Why do animals need to hear it?
How do we identify sound sources? What is ethnomusicology and where did it come from? What is consciousness? Yet it is not harmony that Beethoven would readily have recognized. They are evidence of a deep investigation into sound itself, one that doubled as a quest for an all-encompassing language of the spirit.
His biography contains one very sad story—his first wife, the poet Claire Delbos, suffered from cerebral atrophy and had to be committed to a nursing home—and one intensely dramatic episode, the writing of the Quartet for the End of Time at Stalag VIII A.
Otherwise, Messiaen kept to a steady routine—composing music, teaching classes at the Paris Conservatory, traveling to attend performances of his works, and, every Sunday, playing organ at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Paris. He held the latter job from until his death in , playing Messiah at Christmastime and fulfilling other prosaic duties.
Fellow composers would sometimes drop by Holy Trinity to find out what kind of music Messiaen played for the parishioners on an ordinary Sunday. Heard him improvise at noon. Why the Church allows it during service is a mystery. As Peter Hill and Nigel Simeone report in their biography of the composer, the accommodations were fairly spartan, with one communal bathroom on each floor of the building.
The main living quarters were decorated in devout Catholic style, plastic crucifixes all around.
The conductor Kent Nagano, who collaborated closely with Messiaen in his last years, was once pressed to tell some unflattering or otherwise revealing anecdote about his mentor, and all he had to offer was a story about how Messiaen and Loriod had once devoured an entire pear tart at one sitting.
God spoke to Messiaen through sounding tones, whether the mighty roar of the orchestra or the church organ, the clattering of exotic percussion, or the songs of birds.
The Lord could manifest Himself in consonance and dissonance alike, though consonance was His true realm.
