Olivier Messiaen: Journalism / Stephen Broad

'Whittaker' was excited to see a colleague's book in the latest Ashgate Music catalogue today.

Olivier Messiaen: Journalism 1935-1939

By Dr Stephen Broad, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

"This is the first edition of Messiaen's early journalism and provides both the original French text and an English translation. Many of the articles included in this collection are new to the Messiaen bibliography, and others are available here for the first time in English.  This edition, therefore, represents a new source for understanding Messiaen and provides a fascinating glimpse of the composer in the early part of his career."
