Messiaen: Quartet for th. .has been added to your Cart. This 1999 recording features the outstanding violinist Gil Shaham as well as pianist Myung-Whun Chung, who qualifies as a direct pupil of Olivier Messiaen through their collaboration in the last years of the composer's life, so it comes with excellent credentials. The results are mostly very good but I have a few reservations that prevents me from being wholeheartedly enthusiastic.
Olivier Messiaen is a man who is difficult to put in any convenient pigeonhole. He was firstly one of the great composers of the twentieth century. He was also a renowned organist; the bulk of his music is written for this instrument, and he held the position of chief organist at La Trinité in Paris from 1931 until his death. He was a famous teacher, his students including Boulez, Stockhausen, Nono and Xenakis. But he was also a devout student of many subjects. In fact, a bit like James Joyce's Ulysses people refer to the Quartet for the End of Time with respect and reverence, without in many cases having heard it. In 1940, Olivier Messiaen was a conscript in the French army. With the fall of France, he was captured by the Germans and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp, Stalag 8A in Görlitz, Silesia.
