Olivier Messiaen - The Crystal Liturgy

A film by Olivier Mille


THE CRYSTAL LITURGY recreates the universe in which Messiaen evolved. Numerous archival clips, filmed between 1964 and 1987 - predominantly of Messiaen discussing his methods and creative processes, have been brought together to create a self-portrait, illustrated with a great number of excerpts from his oeuvre.

*****

“…this 1997 film goes a long way to conveying the richness of Messiaen's creativity and the paradox of being simultaneously central to 20th-century musical thought and atypical of it. Messiaen's unassuming, quietly authoritative manner is engaging, and the numerous moments where his enthusiasm is given full rein are compelling.”
