(1908-1992). French composer, performer, teacher. Olivier Messiaen studied at the Paris Conservatoire (1919-30) with Dukas, Dupré and others, and taught there from 1941-78 while also serving as organist of La Trinité in Paris (1931-92).
Le merle noir – The Blackbird – was composed in March 1952 as the test piece for the flute class at the Paris Conservatoire. Messiaen took the opportunity to make an important stylistic departure in this work: it the first of his pieces to attempt a detailed depiction of a specific named bird. It was the composer's first piece of instrumental chamber music, and an early review said it was "solidly constructed by a musicians who has studied counterpoint thoroughly..." Le Merle noir (The Blackbird) was a flute solo continuing the many works in Messiaen's opera based on bird song. Olivier Messiaen "Catalogo de pajaros" La audición de esta obra musical se hace algo difícil pero no insoportable. Utilizando el piano como instrumento principal Messiaen juega con las percusiones dándoles un papel especial, es un dialogo entre los instrumentos que crean un clima travieso e inquieto.
