OLIVIER MESSIAEN: Trois petites liturgies de la Présence Divine

Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony present passionate performances of two rarely recorded masterpieces by Morlot’s countryman, French composer Olivier Messiaen. One work celebrates Messiaen’s love for his wife, the other his commitment to his faith. Together they make up an album of sacred and transcendent beauty, showing two sides of one of the most influential composers of the 20th century.
