Notes & Reviews:

"This 8-CD set contains almost all of Messiaen's music for orchestra or large mixed ensembles...While listeners might still have individual preferences in certain works, all of the performances are excellent. A few of them, including L'Ascension, Illumations of the Beyond, and The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ are clearly the finest modern versions available... Certainly there's no lack of excitement from Cambreling in such passages as Turangalila's fifth-movement Joy of the Blood of the Stars, and he's assisted by a first-rate lineup of soloists, led by pianist Roger Muraro, one of the finest Messiaen interpreters on the stage today." -Classics Today (10/10)
