    Grisey: L'Icône paradoxale [1992-1994]

    I have never ever seen this work mentioned here on TC. But I listened to it yesterday and today, and it's fantastic -- for me, one of the best discoveries in the past month or two. I'd still rank it lower than Les Espaces acoustiques, Vortex temporum, and Les Chant de l'amour, but it's better than the Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil. For those interested, here's Grisey's program note in French -- just run it through google translate for the English (the translation is pretty good):
    http://brahms.ircam.fr/works/work/8959/

    And here's the painting on which it's based:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonn..._del_parto.jpg

    Highly recommended if you're into Grisey but don't know his more obscure works.

    Good work! I've moved it to the 98th tier. (That's up eleven tiers. It looks like twelve tiers, but one of those tiers, the 102nd, is empty so that we can split the 103rd when we get to it.)
