  • Reinis Zariņš piano

Messiaen’s vast cycle (1944) is a meditation on the infancy of Jesus. A previous UK performance by the Latvian pianist drew forth high praise from The Guardian: his ‘embrace of the music’s monumentality and its intimacy was remarkable. Taking the 20-piece cycle in a single sweep and playing from memory, he riveted the attention: two hours … flew by, transcending time.’
