Olivier Messiaen Vingt regards sur l’enfant Jésus

Any performance of Messiaen’s meditation on the childhood of Christ is a special event. But when the pianist is Steven Osborne, acclaimed round the world for his breathtaking traversal of this veritable Everest of the pianist’s repertoire, the event
becomes unmissable.

Messiaen distils his passionate catholic faith into a kaleidoscopic tapestry of sound with an emotional range running from profound contemplation to ecstatic joy. An overwhelming experience.

“Osborne had a wonderful sense of sweep and colour [and] had his listeners rapt… even unbelievers might have felt
like falling to their knees”.
The Independent
