Pierre-Laurent Aimard by Marco Borggreve, Tamara Stefanovich by Marco Borggreve
Messiaen’s Visions de l’Amen, written shortly after his release from a prisoner of war camp during the Second World War, fuses religious fervor and earthly passion. Daring in its explorations of color, harmony, and rhythm, this ardent work was written for the composer and his student (and future wife) Yvonne Loriod. Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich, renowned for their spectacular virtuosity and piercing intelligence, perform Messiaen’s masterpiece alongside music by Ravel, Bartok, and a Harrison Birtwistle work co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall.
