Olivier Messiaen: Vingt Regards sur L'Enfant-Jesus / Evan Hirsch, piano

Album Summary

>Messiaen, Olivier : Vingt Regards sur L'Enfant-Jesus
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Evan Hirsch says in his notes that Vingt Regards sur L'Enfant-Jésus has held a cherished place in his solo repertoire. He finds that it speaks to him viscerally and directly. Evan Hirsch teaches at Brandeis University as well as performing extensively as a recitalist and chamber player. His extensive discography includes recordings on the Arsis, Naxos, New Albion and Albany Records labels.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
This is square and toothless. Hirsch has good technique but little imagination. 'The Kiss of the Infant Jesus' is completely devoid of mystery - it sounds friendly, if "friendly" may be used in a negative way. Only 'The View of the Father' has the right spirit. The program notes inform us that the Vingt Regards was written while Messiaen was interred by the Nazis.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center, Dartmouth College (2005-2008).
