Product description

MEYER / SHAHAM / WANG / CHUNG

Amazon.co.uk

Don't be put off by the relatively low playing time of this issue (52'30). Presented in such intense terms as this, to follow the Quartet for the End of Time with anything at all would be simply inappropriate. The four instrumentalists (all soloists in their own right) seem to come together to present a vision at one with Messiaen's intentions. This piece demands that its interpreters can summon up both transcendental calm and ecstatic virtuosity. Paul Meyer's account of the long third movement for solo clarinet, "Abime des oiseaux", is gripping throughout. Both the shorter "Interméde" and "Danse de la fureur, pour les sept trompettes" demonstrate how the players seem to think as one. Jian Wang's playing in "Louange à l'Eternité de Jésus seems to both sum up the preceding seven movements and at the same time transcend them. Shaham's final symbolic ascent into the heavens (the highest reaches of the violin) is spellbinding. This version seems to encapsulate the very essence of Messiaen. Indispensable. --Colin Clarke
