Olivier Messiaen: The Complete Organ Works Volume 3

Reviews- Volume Three

“One might say that Dame Gillian Weir as born to play Messiaen... such is the authority of [her] interpretations... Every facet of the music — technical, spiritual, emotional — is conveyed with conviction and intensity, and the Frobenius organ of Arhus Cathedral is an ideal partner.” Christopher Nickol, Gramophone, February 2004

“...virtuosic and electrifying playing... will leave many listeners gasping.” Peter Jewkes, Sydney Organ Journal, August 2003
