Moderato Charles Koechlin. I hope this is the beginning of a series of French music recordings from van Raat. The sound is all you can wish. Gramophone Magazine Les heures persanes unfolds in a dreamlike way in Ralph van Raat's committed reading, playing that is truly inside the music - an artist ploughing his own furrow. Show Basket.

Add to Cart. Audio Samples Koechlin — Les heures persanes, Op. It does not resort to simulations of Arabic scales and it is highly transparent, though Koechlin's taste in harmonic and orchestral color is obviously impressionistic. As it is a part suite, any kind of standard formal development scheme is out the window, and the mood is prevailingly quiet and mysterious with only very few eruptions of emotion.
Nevertheless, it is a flexible structure that can be appreciated in short stretches or in the long form as a kind of otherworldly background music.
Holliger's interest in the piece may be piqued in that it has a lot of great parts for his instrument, the oboe, and the winds are better handled here than in Segerstam's recording.
However, this ambiance seems to serve the music a little better, as Segerstam's recording is not very transparent and rather bumbling at times. This release should be your top of the line choice for Les Heures Persanes, a work that should appeal strongly to those who like the quiet parts of Charles Ives' Central Park in the Dark or Dominic Frontiere's music for The Outer Limits.
