Notes & Reviews:

"This performance by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France directed by Messiaen specialist Myung-Whun Chung is a mellow contrast to Esa-Pekka Salonen's piercing, modernist reading on Sony. Chung's way with the music is more lyrical and romantic, full of exquisite poetry. The brass chords are subtly shaped; the high percussion pings and clatters with exceptional delicacy; the low winds emit a deep, satisfying growl." - Sullivan, ARG

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
This is a score that requires a shockingly high standard of virtuosity from every player, and gets it - the French Radio players are thrilling to listen to, Chung is Messiaen's devoted disciple, and he knows just how to frame his soloists, unleash the exotic colours and pace the whole piece...Time stands still when you immerse yourself in this remarkable new recording.
