    Messiaen:
    Vingt Regards sur L'Enfant Jesus

    1. - Regard du Pere
    4. - Par lui tout a ete fait

    I thought I had Vingt Regards...but I only have excerpts, and only one of them is one that I need. :cry:

    You're lucky it's just the listening exam and not the performance one. :p

    The Vingt Regards selection you need is on YT, played (wonderfully) by Roger Muraro.

    Come on, none of the above is awful music (Campanella aside :roll: ), it's just you asking too much from yourself. You got a stack overflow. Ludus Tonalis or Messiaen, you can't grasp or appreciate them overnight. Cheer up. What does the listening exam consist of?

    We have a couple inches of snow on the ground here. It's supposed to get warm tomorrow and rain, but then turn cold on Monday and snow again. Great... :x

    Is the semester over for you now, Terez?

    :x I'm through with being tortured!

    But I did enjoy, at least, the style with which the pianist you recommended for Vingt Regards played. That piano was awesome, too - it sounded like a real freight train for a while in one piece. Impressive!

    I saw bits of that in the office of the head of my music theory department (not my counterpoint teacher). Cute stuff. :lol:
