Messiaen: Complete Organ Works / Andrews (8 CDs!)
A monumental acheivement---Colin Andrews is one of only a handful of organists that has recorded Messiaen's complete works for organ. This recording is also the first of Messiaen's complete works to be recorded on American organs, both built by C. B. Fisk. "Andrews is a master at capturing the grandeur, spaciousness and reverence of this music, and he offers new and compelling interpretations. He is not afraid to explore what Messiaen himself described as ‘extremely delicate variations of rhythm and tempo’ – inflections that are intensely personal, impossible to notate or replicate and are frequently captivating. The enormous variety of touches called for across the cycle are worthy of mention, most notably a wonderfully smooth legato...The recording quality is excellent, with Roger Sherman from Loft expertly negotiating the challenge of recording organs in resonant rooms, balancing clarity with spaciousness...Highly recommended." - Sydney Organ Journal
