Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This concert won the acclaim of critics and public alike, and a unique career as an international concert and recording artist followed. Among many notable Messiaen performances were her recitals in 1978 to salute the composer's 70th birthday and her cycle of the complete works for the Messiaen Festival in honor of his 80th. Her later recordings of the complete works have been acclaimed as among the best ever made. Weir's achievements through an illustrious career have been marked by the reissue on CD of her renowned series of Argo recordings and her nomination by Classic CD magazine as one of the 100 Greatest Keyboard Players of the Century.
