    I bought this for the fine quartet but Dorati's Chronochromie is spectacular! Both recorded in the 1960s in superb sound. Now available on a budget Warner Classics re-issue.
    I bought this for Dorati's spectacular Chronochromie, but the Quatuor Pour La Fin Du Temps is a fine bonus. All in excellent SQ.

    I’m not a huge fan of Messiaen, but somehow I ended up with many box sets of his music.

    Quatuor pour la fin du temps is without a doubt my favorite Messiaen work. I’ll have to revisit that performance.

    I'm a huge fan of certain pieces but some others leave me dissatisfied. I haven't made it half way through his very long opera. I decided against the attractive looking Warner box because I don't have the appetite for that much piano music, and I've already got a box set of organ works.

    I love solo piano music and I think some of Messiaen’s works here are quite good. But, I’m like you, in that there’s much I’m not taken with in his oeuvre. But there have been some remarkable discoveries once I dug much deeper and I suspect you will feel similarly.

    Finally, a composer employs the theremin in a way that doesn't remind me of cheesy 50's sci-fi movie soundtracks.
