The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra focused extensively on Messiaen in its 2007–8 season.

During this special season, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra programmed works not only by Messiaen himself, but also compositions by his musical predecessors, students and disciples. In addition to two compositions by Messiaen, this recording features three premieres of works commissioned by the RCO: Geert van Keulen’s orchestration of Paul Dukas’s La plainte, au loin, du faune…, Marc-André Dalbavie’s La source d’un regard (The Source of a Look) and Robert Zuidam’s Adam Interludes.

With this second release in the Horizon CD series dedicated to contemporary repertoire, RCO Live has captured this resounding homage to Olivier Messiaen in superb five-channel stereo.
