Olivier Messiaen would have been 100 this year. He was also KOO-KOO for birds, he spend much of his adult life transcribing their songs. This Sunday night on The Signal Pat hands all three hours over to Halifax and The Scotia Festival’s presentation of the seven “books” of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’oiseaux (Catalogue of Birds). Halifax’s Simon Docking will perform this epic work and CBC’s Peter Togni will narrate Messiaen’s poetry.
This work is described as: “Some of the most beautifully evocative music for solo piano ever penned”
