    A really great work!
    Performances are very good. Magic nerve. But the sound is only average.

    The Turangalîla-Symphonie is my favourite orchestral work, St. François d'Assise is my favourite opera, much of his organ music is absolutely thrilling, and many of the chamber and solo piano works rank highly for me.

    One of my all time favourites, to be sure.

    Very exciting work! An abundance of moods, shades and variations.
    Excellent performance, but the sound seems a bit closed.

    From La Fête des belles eaux. Good but sadly neglected piece.

    Messiaen is a very inspirational composer to me. I use a lot of palindromes in the music I've been writing recently, and I've started writing orchestral music with ondes martenot parts now!

    2008 Complete Edition is better, even has some previously unrecorded works.

    It's a shame that Wit's recordings of Turangalîla and L'ascension never get on these big sets, probably because Naxos won't license them to other record companies, but still; Wit needs representation, damn it!

    I own a CD with "Quatuor pour la fin du temps" (Barenboim at the piano). I listened to it once, just after purchasing it. And never feel like trying a second listening. What are the most accessible Messiaen works, to start with?

    Quartet For The End Of Time

    But truthfully, listening to a piece once doesn't do much for accessibility.
