MessiaenOlivier-Eugène-Prosper-Charles Messiaen

Olivier Messiaen was a French composer, organist and ornithologist, considered to be one of the major composers of the 20th century. His music is rhythmically complex; harmonically and melodically it often uses modes of limited transposition, which he abstracted from his early compositions and improvisations. Messiaen also drew on his Roman Catholic faith for his pieces.
