Notes & Reviews:

ATMA celebrates the centenary of French composer Olivier Messiaen, one of the most important composers of the mid- to late-20th century. Suzie LeBlanc is best-known on recordings for her work with Baroque music, and is perhaps ATMA' most prolific recording artist. Her famous purity of tone and impeccable musicianship make her a superb interpreter of Messiaen' austerely beautiful work.

BBC Music Magazine
LeBlanc has a strong pedigree in Baroque repertoire, and her clear fresh voice is especially effective in the Trois mélodies and as the pure 'first soul' in La mort du nombre, Lawrence Wiliford providing a robust foil.
