Final resting place for Messiaen’s papers

The national library of France has taken possession of the documentary estate of Olivier Messiaen and his wife Yvonne Loriod.

The archive – almost 250 metres of manuscript scores, letters, books, photographs, recordings and concert programmes – will be house in Paris at the BibNat.

The couple’s house at Petichet, beside the lac de Laffrey in Isère, will open later this year as an artists’ rest home.
