Does anyone else hear a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star variation in this?


Yes haha, I've always thought that as well! At 1:38 and similar parts. Also, the big chords starting at 0:43 sounds like the Debussy prelude "Ce Qu'a Vu le Vent d'Ouest".

Danny Obi

Yeah at 1:38 and there is also this whip like motif at 0:44.

J Martin

Twinkle is or does seem to be quoted and why not (just perfect fifths- but it could also be the idea of stars in the firmament as related to the terrifying Vision of the cosmos .) Messiaen repeats so much of his pattrns and motifs putting into different keys with slight changes to fulfill the requirements he sets . ( I must read some or even one paper on this monumental music . I had a beautiful French edition old score with 16inch pages it was so beautiful and moving somehow lost it . It should have been in a library ! I can't believe I lost this treasure now that it's important to me along with old Godowsky etudes . They were generous with paper in the early 20th century .
