Olivier Messiaen, 100 years

Olivier Messiaen

On this day, 100 years ago, Olivier Messiaen was born. Make sure to read today's Wikipedia featured article about the composer. You can also listen to a great Messiaen organ piece in Alex Ross's post about the same matter.

I also intend to post later this month something about his La Nativité du Seigneur, given the Nativity period we're in.
