Editorial Reviews

Messiaen's song cycles Trois Mélodies (1930) and Harawi (1945) were both inspired by the loss of
a loved one: the Mélodies are a memorial to his mother who had died three years previously, and
Harawi was written shortly after his wife Claire Delbos had begun to suffer from the long illness
that would ultimately lead to her death. But far from resorting to misery, the shimmering beauty
of Messiaen's music leaves the listener with a sense of hope and transcendence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular March 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's not much competition for these songs by Messiaen in the CD catalogue, but it's hard to imagine a more compelling case for this music than the performance on this Naxos release. The musical collaboration of the two artists is of the highest order and the result is simply spellbinding. Pianist Kristoffer Hyldig seems born to play Messiaen, for everything is here -- the delicacy, spikiness, and architectural clarity that are hallmarks of Messiaen's soundworld. Soprano Hetna Regitze Bruun has an astonishing voice -- resonant and rock-solid across the considerable range these songs demand of the singer, and the timbre is uniquely other-worldly (and so appropriate to this music). Listening to these two artists bring "Harawi" to such vivid life makes the song cycle seem like the landmark in 20th-century French music that it probably is.

2.0 out of 5 stars Messaien: Trois Melodies January 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Messian Trois Melodies - Harawi is a new album recorded on the Naxos label by Hetna Regitze Bruun, Mezzo Soprano and Kristoffer Hyldig, piano. Olivier Messiaen was a modern French composer whose music is both harmonically and rhythimically complex. The first set of pieces on the album, Trois Melodies, were written by Messaien as a memorial to his mother. The second song cycle, Harawi, is from the Inca word `Yaravi' and is a series of 12 songs that depict love and death. All the pieces are performed by Bruun and Hyldig with great skill. They're very much in sync with their interpretations of the music. Overall, the music left me feeling a little cold. There wasn't one particular piece that immediately grabbed my attention. If you're a strong admirer of the works of Messaien, then this album will fit nicely into your Messaien collection.
