The great Alex Ross takes notice of the U. of C.'s Messiaen centennial and offers some recommended recordings. Tonight's performance features Pierre Laurent-Aimard, a former student of the composer, conducting Oiseaux exotiques (Exotic Birds). These videos are great introductions to Messiaen's ornothological interests.
