Notes & Reviews:

Poémes pour Mi, sung by soprano Gwen-Ann Jeffers, opens this recording of some of Messiaen's most important chamber works. Pianist Stephen De Pledge, who studied with Messiaen's wife prior to the recording of these works, takes the solo role for 6 petites esquisses d'oiseaux as well as the 14th and 15th pieces from Messiaen's Vingt Regards sur l'Enfant-Jésus. Le Merle Noir ("The Blackbird"), for flute and piano is performed here by Flautist Daniel Pailthorpe. De Pledge is joined by the violinist Matthew Trusler for Thème et Variations.
Recorded in 2002/2003
