Olivier Messiaen was both a mystic and musician who engaged in a divine dance with God—and the keyboard. In a towering feat of exceptional artistry, pianist Steven Osborne, one of the “keepers of this flame” (Independent, U.K.), captures the radiant beauty of Messiaen’s multipart meditation Vingts regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus. Performed complete and without intermission, the cycle’s themes of birth, time, and filial love are infused with intoxicating joie de vivre and woven into a transcendent experience for both performer and audience.
