B/ Landmark recordings in which Olivier Messiaen did not himself participate but which involve such outstanding artists as Marie-Claire Alain, Martha Argerich, Pierre-Laurent Aimard (who won the Olivier Messiaen Prize in 1973) and Sir Simon Rattle, among others.Fête des belles eaux (CD13) and 8 Préludes (CD21 Pierre-Laurent Aimard) are released on CD for the first time ever.
