Notes & Reviews:

"Pierre Boulez's distinguished new series of Messiaen recordings continues with the 1936 song cycle 'Poemes pour Mi,' in its luminous orchestral guise, and two of Messiaen's numerous super-idiosyncratic piano concerti...What really makes this new DG issue essential to any true Messiaenist is the orchestral 'Poemes pour Mi,' making what I believe is its CD debut...Boulez profits from the immense, detailed presence of the DG sound..." -Ross, Fanfare
