5.0 out of 5 stars a great recording 29 Jun 2013
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This re-release on the budget "apex" label gives a wider distribution to this recording which is of course very welcome: however buyers may want to check out the original Erato CD release (itself a reissue in the 90s of the 1970s original) which has the photo of Messiaen and Loriod on the cover, and might be preferred depending on the respective prices ... It seems a shame that reissues almost never use the original cover art or photo unless it's tilted at an angle, when it often provides a valuable visual counterpart to the music, as here.

Yvonne Loriod's interpretation of Messiaen's gargantuan piano work has the special status of being recorded with Messiaen present, as well as all the understanding she must have had of his world being married to him. It's presumably about as close as you can get to the interpretation the composer would have given us himself. Made in 1973, the recording is wonderfully clear and full, with superb body in the sound. It actually sounds completely ideal for such an epic musical experience. The range of colour and mood is extraordinary, from the quiet opening Regard du Pere or Je dors mais mon coeur veille, taking in the playful, the grand, the radiantly spiritual ... even a comic element, as in the tune in the amazing final Regard de l'Eglise d'amour, with its repeated chords, high splash and double crash in the bass. At times the music seems to be in about three keys at once. Every chord has such colour, such an upward elan. Messiaen seems to have absorbed elements of Debussy, Ravel, even Rachmaninov in some of the birdsong trills, while turning them into something completely new, bringing a radically new voice into being.

4.0 out of 5 stars historic recording of key Messiaen work 20 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
a brand new acquisition to compare against Haakon Austbo's excellent version on naxos of this knotty,yet trancendent piano work. Messiaen's 2 hour (dbl cd) opus to both his beloved new wife - the dedicatee + performer here , as well as to God, is a extraordinary, demanding, part delicate - equal part dissonant magnum opus for any piano performer or listener.

Loriod's here plays at tempi generally swifter than Austbo ,but with a decent 1970's recording,fine playing + rapt intensity - this bargain release on apex of the orignal 1972 (i think i was) recording is highly recommended. the latest version by Aimard at full price has received much praise for its dazzling playing + i must get around to hearing that also , however this recording here offers many moments of wonder in one of the 20th C most extraordinary solo piano works. Peter Hill's "Catalogue d'Oiseau" 1980's piano series by this composer (on unicord/regis)is also strongly recommended.

Loriod here though is highly recommended,although for me Austbo goes deeper.

Fascinating to compare Loriod with more recent interpreters. Good sound quality over the whole range of piano pitch and volume. Exciting, reflective, inspiring and calming. Great value.
