QUOTED from the inside flap in relevant part: " The Messiaen Companion is the first major study to appear since Messiaen's death (in April 1992), and the first, therefore, to offer a complete survey of his extraordinary achievements. Intended as a comprehensive guide to Messiaen's music, the book also examines in detail the enduring inspiration which Messiaen derived from his religious faith and from his lifelong passion for ornithology and the natural world. The contributors, all of whom have made a special study of the composer, include two biographers of Messiaen and a number of the foremost interpreters of his music. Messiaen's influential teaching is recalled in essays by three of his pupils (Pierre Boulez, George Benjamin, and Peter Hill), and the composer is remembered also in a remarkable and moving contribution from his widow and devoted musical companion, the pianist Yvonne Loriod."
