Sunday morning listening

Or rather, Sunday night. I’m thrilled to be reviewing Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles… Ensemble ACJW with Robert Spano, my first concert in many months. In this excerpt, Appel Interstellaire, Messiaen turns the horn into a galactic transmitter, exploiting the wiggly yelps you can make by pressing the valves down halfway.

    Very like the coyote howls I heard while camping last fall. Interesting pairing it with video of galaxies instead of Utah.
