This is a killer set of modernist piano. Hill isn't just a top recitalist; he's also a scholar. So it makes sense that he'd be the one to find a previously unknown piece by Messiaen -- the title track here -- in the composer's sketches. Hill premieres it in a program that starts with Ravel's "Oiseaux tristes" and moves through familiar Messiaen miniatures (like "La Colombe No. 1") before hitting up Messiaen students like Stockhausen (two "Klavierstück"), Tristan Murail and George Benjamin. The new-to-us Messiaen is from 1961, and sounds like a key addition to the composer's piano catalog. Hot!
