Notes & Reviews:

The 2008 Messiaen celebrations come to an overwhelming climax with this superb 32-CD set of his complete works. This limited edition set from Deutsche Grammophon is a one-of-a kind deluxe edition, including a 400-page booklet in English and French with the complete sung texts and libretto. The crowning gem of this box set is a performance of the two piano 'Visions de l'Amen' with Olivier Messiaen and Yvonne Loriod, recorded in Paris in 1962.
