St. Louis Symphony: Messiaen
MESSIAEN Des Canyons aux Étoiles*
With noted Messiaen interpreter David Robertson at the podium, the marvelous St. Louis Symphony brings new depths to Olivier Messiaen's majestic Des Canyons aux Étoiles (From the Canyons to the Stars) in its Berkeley debut. A tribute to the breathtaking beauty of Utah's southwestern canyon lands, the sublime evening-length work is paired with a new multimedia presentation featuring photography by Deborah O'Grady, co-commissioned by Cal Performances celebrate the centenary of the National Park Service in 2016.
