The Short-toed Lark And The Cetti's War by : Olivier Messiaen

“The Bird Catalogue by Olivier Messiaenis a set of 7 books with 13 pieces for Piano composed between 1956 and 1958. Each volume refers to a special bird and to the region where the bird is typically from in France. The piece not only describes the bird; it also depicts its surroundings; such as other birds; the landscape of its area; the colours and the temperature. Book 1 - Le Chocard des Alpes (Alpine Chough) - Le Loriot (Golden Oriole) IH Le Merle Bleu (Blue Rock Thrush) Book 2 - Le Traquet Stapazin (Black-Eared Wheatear) Book 3 - La Chouette Hulotte (Tawny Owl) - L'Alouette Lulu (Wood Lark) Book 4 - La Rousserolle Effarvatte (Reed Warbler) Book 5 - L'Alouette Calandrelle (Short-Toed Lark) - La Bouscarle (Cetti's Warbler) Book 6 - Le Merle de Roche (Rock Thrush) Book 7 - La Buse Variable (Buzzard) - Le Traquet Rieur (Black Wheatear) - Le Courlis Cendré (Curlew) As mentioned above; this 5th volume focuses on the Short-toed Lark and the Cetti's Warbler. The first one; the Short-toed Lark represents the wilderness of Provence and the Cetti's Warbler; the Charente area. The interpretation of these pieces requires a strong level in Piano (upper advanced); due to some complex technique requirement. Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer who was passionate about Ornithology and one of the most important composers of his century. Inspired by Japanese music; he had a very special way of composing and his work can be identified by its complexity; its diatonic aspect; its harmony with limited transposition; its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsong; including the 'Treatise on rhythm; colour and ornithology' in 7 volumes.”
