Notes & Reviews:

Genuin presents the 12th release in their Artist Consort series dedicated to the music of Olivier Messian.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The concert is well played and expressive. Pescia leads the way with his outstanding keyboard skills and his inspired artistry, and all of the ensembles boast a nice blend, fantastic technique, and tight rhythm. Benda, for one, employs a very soft reed that assists him in his wide dynamic range. Renggli charms us with his velvety legato and his dazzling fingers and tongue. Readers who enjoy Messiaen will appreciate the thoughtfulness behind the project.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Jesus-Christus-Kirche, Berlin, Germany (12/08/2011-12/09/2011).
