Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is Messiaen's most famous work. For listeners who do not know the music of Messiaen, this is probably the most logical (and approachable) place to start. The quartet is really a very beautiful piece. There are severl moments of ecstasy, with the full passion of the fiery Angel surrounded in a swirling rainbow, as well as passages where time seems to stand still. The works receives a very fine performance here.
