Notes & Reviews:

Pierre-Laurent Aimard's tribute to Olivier Messiaen coincides with the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth on December 10, 2008 - A highlight of the Messiaen year! Aimard has a strong personal connection to Messiaen: he studied piano with the composer's wife Yvonne Loriod from the age of twelve and won the Messiaen Competition in 1973. He has been a champion of Messiaen's music throughout his career, one of the few pianists to keep this repertoire alive in the concert hall and bring new admirers to it.
