“Completed in 1960, Time-Colour by Olivier Messiaen is a famous orchestral piece composed by this author. This edition, published as a book, features the conductor's score with all the following instruments: 16 First Violins, 16 Second Violins, 14 Violas, 12 Cellos, 10 Double Basses, 1 Piccolo, 3 Flutes, 3 Oboes, 4 Clarinets, 3 Bassoons, 1 Piccolo Trumpet, 3 C Trumpets, 4 F Horns, 3 Trombones, 1 Tuba, Suspended And Chinese Cymbal, 1 Glockenspiel, 1 Xylophone, 1 Marimba. It is written in seven movements: Introduction, Strophe I, Antistrophe I, Strophe II, Antistrophe II, Epode and Coda; and The Epode features birdsong and is played by 18 of the string instruments. Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer passionate about Ornithology and one of the most important composer 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 'Bird Catalogue' in 7 volumes.&rdquo.
