"Un regard sur Olivier Messiaen"
In Petichet, the summer residence of Olivier Messiaen, Roger Muraro talks about his meeting with the composer and his lessons with Yvonne Loriod.

 

"... From this point of view, the documentary by Stéphan Aubé is a masterful success.
The structure, filming and precise scripting are captivating and provide a corresponding introduction to the work of Messiaen himself... "

A making-of about the recording,
with Pedro Carneiro and Zig-Zag Territoires team

" The visual impact of the percussion is particularly powerful in the filming of Rebonds B.
The clip's rapid and suitable editing style provides an essential key for the appreciation of the CD.
Far from the stereotypes of the architect-mathematician reproduced in the usual portraits of Xenakis."
