Olivier Messiaen: Harawi

Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre

Newcastle City Hall, Newcastle

Magical, mysterious, evocative, transcendental, virtuosic. 

These adjectives begin to describe Harawi – Messiaen's epic and rarely-performed song cycle 

Both music and poetry were written by French 20th Century composer Olivier Messiaen while his wife Claire Delbos was suffering from serious mental illness. Harawi is infused with a fantastical mix of Peruvian ritual, the grandest and catchiest of post-Wagnerian melodies, and a calm, deep faith in the Eternal.

Watch Amy and Antony rehearse one of the movements from the cycle, Amour oiseau d'étoile on our YouTube channel here.
