This disc of shorter Messiaen piano works as played by Louise Bessette was produced for the th anniversary of Messiaen 's birth. Bessette 's touch in the works here brings out the birdsongs wonderfully. It gives the notes a little more shimmery quality and gives each of the Petites esquisses d'oiseaux more life and character than the title "little sketch" would imply. The same is true in La fauvette des Louise Bessette - Les Oiseaux The Garden Warblerwhich depicts the full view of Messiaen 's garden, the lake, and the mountain from his studio window.
Bessette doesn't thrust the majesty of the view on the listener with jagged contrasts of dynamics and articulation. The necessary contrast is there, but it isn't at all jarring; it feels organic, changing as your attention would when something in the landscape catches your eye or ear anew.
Her approach also works well in the posthumously published Prelude, which is one of Messiaen 's religious pieces, and which has a hymnlike melody, clothed in his own particular harmonies. Again, the sense of magnificence is Louise Bessette - Les Oiseaux , but it is not uncomfortably overwhelming.
Yet there is enough here to satisfy Messiaen fans, and Bessette 's way with the birdsong is definitely something to hear.
