Having just returned from a trip - a pilgrimage, really - to the national parks in utah that provided much of the inspiration for this major work in messiaen's oeuvre, i can vouch for the fact that they are just as amazing, just as jaw-droppingly beautiful as his music suggests
This was a major messiaen orchestral work from the mid-70s, written to a commission to celebrate the bicentenary of american independence
And a staggering solo horn movement at the beginning of part 2, the `appel interstellaire' or interstellar call, that makes massive technical demands of the soloist as it reaches for the stars
The music right through the piece is full of incredible colour
