Listening to Recordings: Messiaen's Catalogue d'oiseaux

In the latest of this regular series, Roderick Chadwick and Daniel-Ben Pienaar discuss Yvonne Loriod’s two complete recordings of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’oiseaux. The first was made weeks after the premiere in 1959 and the second in 1970, by which time she was recording Messiaen’s music exclusively.
