Olivier Messiaen: Vingt Regards sur l’enfant-Jésus
Marie Vermeulin, piano
Twenty Gazes on the Christ-child is one of piano music’s miracles. The composer Olivier Messiaen said that the piano can be more orchestral than the orchestra itself. This epic cycle drawing its inspiration from the catholic theology verifies the composer’s claim. A highly regarded Messiaen interpreter Marie Vermeulin lights Messiaen’s piano fireworks in the breathtakingly beautiful Espoo Cathedral.
