Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus by Olivier Messiaen

“At the origins, this work had to accompany the poems of Maurice Toesca, La Nativité, a project for radio. Playing Vingt Regards sur l`Enfant – Jésus, I imagined the words which could follow the music, the voice of the actor reading the poems, the atmosphere of Christmas, people after the 2nd World War listening it to the radio like a ray of hope after so much craziness of destruction.

The violence is present also in this cycle, a terrible and extremely one. Jesus himself was a victim of it. In Regards we find the chaos before the creation, but also the tenderness of the motherhood, the image of a sweet sleep of Child Jesus, the wonderful freedom and joy of birds… And after all, in the end, Messiaen shows us the Christian window for peace and freedom, which is love.”

Anca Elena.

Anca Elena and Pianists Corner offer you a rendezvous every two weeks. Each rendezvous will contain one Regard. The first episode will be released first week of December.

#13 – Noël

Les cloches de Noël disent avec nous les doux noms de Jésus, Marie, Joseph …

The Christmas bells say with us the sweet names of Jesus, Mary, Joseph …

Olivier Messiaen.

“Red, violet or orange bells, huge or minuscule, far away or very close, they all are singing the purest joy of Messiah’s birth. The opening of Noël is a celebration of rhythm and color in Messiaen’s style and so many different ways to treat piano possibilities as percussion instrument are proving a childish curiosity to see which are its limits.

The middle part shows us the miracle of inner peace… The song of heart is whispered, the blessing of motherhood and the holiness of the Child are there, in front of us, in our emotional memory.

Performing Noël it’s like conducting a chamber orchestra, every instrument should be a sparkling soloist, every of them should have space and something different to tell in a story with carols, snow and the Christmas tree.”

Anca Elena.
