Notes & Reviews:

This release celebrates the 100th anniversary of French composer Oliver Messiaen. It is a compilation of Messiaen's ecstatic slow movements: a sequence of eight movements from major works that together make an unforgettable impression: supple in rhythm, subtle in melody and incredibly rich in harmony. Almost like variations on a theme (with plenty of F sharp major too!), the 70-minute disc is uniquely relaxing and moving at the same time.
