Notes & Reviews:

Messiaen's musical language is derived from a number of varied sources, including Greek metrical rhythms, Hindu tradition, the serialism of Schoenberg, Debussy and bird-song, with his whole work and life deeply influenced by the spirit of Catholicism. These discs bring together two of his greatest orchestral works. Naxos has succeeded by offering a broad range of titles in excellent performances and sound, allowing music lovers to explore. This Messiaen disc is one such success.
