Olivier Messiaen: Des canyons aux étoiles

First part: moderated concert (in French) (19:00)

Second part: complete performance (20:15)


Olivier Messiaen’s imposing hymn of praise to the Earth, from its ravines to the stars, is a work of sweeping beauty and transcendence. To start the evening, Jean-François Zygel introduces Des canyons aux étoiles, together with the ensemble intercontemporain. The work is then performed in its entirety with a visual interpretation by Ann Veronica Janssens, an artist in light with whom Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker has regularly collaborated.
