Messiaen: Préludes; Four Rhythmic Studies; Cantéyodjayâ

Our rating 
2.0 out of 5 star rating 2.0

COMPOSERS: Messiaen
LABELS: Naxos
WORKS: Préludes; Four Rhythmic Studies; Cantéyodjayâ
PERFORMER: Håkon Austbø (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: 8.554090
A disappointing release following Håkon Austbø’s impressive earlier Messiaen recordings. The Préludes do not glow with the necessary poetry and passion, the quirky games of Cantéyodjayâ lack joy, and the revolutionary pages of the rhythmic studies produce few sparks. Christopher Dingle
