Notes & Reviews:

"Their reading of Quatuor pour la fin du Temps is notable for the musician's sense of balance, bringing some lines to the foreground and keeping others in the shadows. Maintaining that sense of balance with this unusual ensemble is one of the marks of a performance that's transcendent, rather than merely correct. Here the unusual subtlety of the dynamics and the broad palette of colors the players produce are revelatory." -All Music Guide

BBC Music Magazine
Who would want to listen to anything after the Quartet for the end of Time? ... while they lack the freedom of Messiaen's recording, the Gould Trio and Robert Plane are among the best modern accounts.

Gramophone Magazine
The augmented Gould Trio... turns in an admirably well judged, scrupulously expressive performance, very well recorded. The Gould team offer a rarity in the form of Messiaen's piano arrangement of his early orchestral piece Les offrandes oubliées, and Benjamin Frith's fine performance underlines just how pianistic the turbulent central episode actually is.
