Product Description

First Ever Grammy Winning Performance for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (without Orchestra)
This is Messiaen's last and longest organ work--a thematic cycle based on the sacrament of Communion comprising 18 movements, many based on his recorded improvisations, arranged into three thematic groups. Paul Jacobs is widely acknowledged for reinvigorating the American organ scene with a fresh performance style and 'an unbridled joy of music-making' (Baltimore Sun). He has performed the complete organ works of Messiaen in nine sittings in eight American cities.
