Olivier Messiaen Vingt regards sur lâ€™enfant JÃ©sus
Any performance of Messiaenâ€™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 pianistâ€™s repertoire, the event
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.
â€œOsborne had a wonderful sense of sweep and colour [and] had his listeners rapt… even unbelievers might have felt
like falling to their kneesâ€.
