With an introduction by Daniel Schvetz, professor of piano and composition at the National Conservatory of Lisbon.

A remarkable work of art, without doubt one of the most interesting and touching chamber music creations of the first half of the XXth century, with an original and peculiar combination of instruments, but extremely curious due to its form and timbre combinations.

The inspiration came from multiple sources, beginning with the Book of Revelations/The Apocalypse, which resonated deeply and sincerely with Olivier Messiaen’s profound religious feelings and beliefs. Each of its eight parts, or musical scenes, is endowed with a suggestive and mystical title, “Liturgie du  Cristal”, “Louange a l’eternitée du Jesus” etc, and came from someone who conceived and created this work while in captivity in a German prisoner of war between 1940 and 1941. Amidst the crosscurrents of war time and religion, without any hesitation, his creative power can be found and discovered by us from the beginning to the very end of this incredible masterpiece of chamber music.
