Messiaen: Organ Works - Weir
Messiaen: Organ Works - Weir (Decca 481 0793)
SKU: 16256
AU $13.59

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 481 0793 Medium: CD No. Discs: 2

An undiscovered treasure! Recorded in 1966 but never released we have nearly 100 minutes of Messiaen recorded by Gillian Weir shortly after she won the St. Alban's Competition. At the centrepiece of this recital is Les Corps Glorieux and the other pieces display Dame Gillian's immense command over and total empathy with this music. The 7000+-word notes include an introduction to the recording; detailed notes on the works; and a fascinating article on her association and work with Olivier Messiaen - all by Dame Gillian. Also included is a technical note on the history of the recording (made in the early hours of the morning on 10 and 11 October 1966, to ensure that any sound of trains was minimised!) and its remastering, by Campbell Hughes, engineer for the original project and remastering engineer for this issue.

Artists: Gillian Weir (organ)
Composers: Messiaen.
