To experience Messiaen’s Catalogue d’oiseaux is to enter into another time, not only because of its length (nearly three hours), but also because it moves through all the moments of both day and night with Messiaen’s beloved “winged models,” to whom the work, composed between 1956 and 1958, is dedicated. Magnifying these moments with his introductions and commentary, Pierre-Laurent Aimard offers a fully immersive experience.
