Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This Warner Classics debut makes clear that they show great imagination in their programming: Messiaen's mystical and epic 'Visions de l'Amen', composed during World War II, appears alongside John Adams' boisterous and percussive Hallelujah Junction, inspired by a truckstop on the border of Nevada and California. The CD is completed with JS Bach's serenely moving 'Gotttes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit, BWV106' (Sonatina from 'Actus tragicus') in an arrangement by the contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
Just about everything comes together in this recording [of Messiaen's 'Visions de l'Amen']...The Naughton twins don't take the opening movement's trFs lent directive at face value...but they pull you in with their assiduously gradual, painstakingly incremental dynamic build-up.
