Album Description
2008 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Olivier Messiaen. To begin the celebration, Deutsche Gramophon has issued a stunningly gorgeous compilation of various slow movements. Supple in rhythm, subtle in melody and incredibly rich in harmony, these selections create an unforgettable experience for the listener, whether well-versed in Messiaen's musical language or a novice. The disc includes performances by many artists who are closely associated with the composer, including Yvonne Loriot (Messiaen's wife), Myung-Whun Chung, Daniel Barenboim, Olivier Latry and others.
