The composers Olivier Messiaen and Gustav Mahler have a lot in common: A fascination with the sounds of nature, for example. Or a flair for unusual orchestral colours. And – as Franz Welser-Möst shows in this programme – also an interest in Asian literature: Gustav Mahler used German adaptations of Chinese poems for his "Song of the Earth". And Olivier Messiaen wrote his "Sept haïkaï" after his honeymoon with Yvonne Loriod in Japan: an enchanting work for orchestra and piano that was inspired by the music of the Japanese theatre and the chirping of Japanese birds, among other things.
