Exact in feeling: Messiaen’s recorded performances of his Livre d’orgue

Abstract [en]

The article provides analyses of Olivier Messiaen´s art of interpretation, as recorded in three performances of his own Livre d'orgue. Beside the wellknown 1956 recording from Sainte-Trinité in Paris, documentation of live concerts from Stuttgart (1953) and Göteborg (1957) are considered. The study also discusses tensions between imperatives for an exact rendering of notation and freedom of expression. It suggests that these dimensions are not necessarily mutually opposed, and uses Messiaen's own statements to outline a temporal progression from an initial grasp of the exact notation to lively and sensible interpretations.
