Alfonso Gómez offers his new reading of this masterpiece by Olivier Messiaen.

'The mystery of incarnation is the most beautiful aspect of divinity - and it is the reason why I am a Christian. I do not consider the differences between Orthodox, Protestant or Catholic: a Christian is someone who understands that God has come.' (Olivier Messiaen). From the point of view of music history, Vingt Regards is a milestone of 20th century piano literature; spiritually it is an offering of Christmas 'spiritual piano exercises' in 20 contemplations. Olivier Messiaen summarizes it as follows: 'More than in any of my previous work I sought a language of mystical love that is multifaceted, powerful and tender; sometimes even terrifying. All with the greatest vividness possible.' Alfonso Gómez, one of the most eminent specialists for 20th and 21st century piano music, offers his new reading of this masterpiece by Olivier Messiaen.
