    The price alone should be enough to persuade those unsure souls who've yet to enter messiaen's musical world to give it a whirl.

    The massive 80-minute turangalila-symphonie is a ten-movement work which features solo piano and a solo ondes martenos, an electronic contraption that makes an unearthly, ghost kind of sound.

    The middle movement has such a joyful and nearly humorous melody, you can't help but smile.

    The addition of constant tinkly bells and piano, and the confusion of the middle section, it is all a breathless account.

    Although the sound may lack that last bit of bass power and hall sound, it is clean and clear and well-balanced, allowing the listener to enjoy the music undistracted.

    Now in my mid-40s, i doubt i'll ever lose my deep affection for it, particularly those ecstatic passages that express erotic delirium -- something a pre-adult listener wouldn't (and shouldn't) understand just yet.

    Naxos has this uncanny knack of releasing incredibly good recordings of all sorts of literature, but what's unique is that these aren't just good recordings.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In my humble opinion, many naxos releases are actually better overall productions than their better-known and pricier counterparts.
