Notes & Reviews:

Nature, as a symbol of divine perfection, was a great source of inspiration for Messiaen, one that drove him to integrate birdsong into his music in ever more expressive ways. His ideal was to compose music as if nature had produced it without human intervention. "Nature is the supreme resource: an inexhaustible treasury of colors and sounds, of forms and rhythms; an unequaled model of complete development and endless variation!" He professed an undying love for the piano, writing some of his best work for the instrument. An exceedingly appealing performer, Louise Bessette has made a personal hallmark of offering inspired, energetic interpretations of the finest in original music, whether in recital or as a soloist with orchestras or chamber formations.
