Olivier Messiaen’s uniquely distinctive and powerfully expressive musical
voice drew strength from religious faith and nature. A prestigious commission,
Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum commemorates the dead of two World
Wars through the transcendence of Christ’s Resurrection. Scored for winds and
percussion, the work is conceived for and conjures up vast spaces. Le tombeau
resplendissant and Hymne are early works, but equally filled with mystery
and symbolism. Fanfare magazine described Jun Märkl’s previous volume
in this series (Poèmes pour Mi / 8.572174) as “the best recording around of a
mesmerizing masterwork”.
