ambivalent ambiguity

This piece has transported me to near trance on more than one occasion


Thank you for uploading this piece - it is simply astonishing.


This reminds me of The Thing (1982)

Vittorio Bacchiega

The pedal is sing of bird (Messiaen was an ornithologist)

Vittorio Bacchiega

@Fryderyk Chopin you're right. I found a rethoric explanations of this piece and it is the Jesu' s holy sacrifice of body and blood (pedal play like water drop but it is a holy blood).
Thanks for your correction.

Fryderyk Chopin

No, it's not, it is the drops of Jesus' blood falling to the ground. Olivier himself described this in that way. By the way, the bird would emit such a single sounds that are so punctual, he was an ornithologist would know it...
