MESSIAEN

MESSIAEN
Seattle Symphony Media, released August 18, 2017

Olivier Messiaen: Trois petites liturgies de la Présence Divine
Michael Brown, piano
with Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony

Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony present passionate performances of two rarely recorded masterpieces by Morlot’s countryman, French composer Olivier Messiaen. One work celebrates Messiaen’s love for his wife, the other his commitment to his faith. Together they make up an album of sacred and transcendent beauty, showing two sides of one of the most influential composers of the 20th century.

George Perle: Eight Pieces

George Perle: Eight Pieces (1938-1997)
Bridge Records, released May 2014


As the George Perle centennial year (2015) nears, pianist Michael Brown makes an important contribution to our knowledge of the American-master's keyboard music. The earliest work on this disc, Classic Suite, as well as the most recently completed composition, Chansons cachées, are world-premiere recordings, with the entire program reflecting the performer's deep involvement with Perle's music over more than a decade. Writing to Michael Brown in 2003, Perle commented that: "it is a privilege to hear my music performed with such sympathy and understanding. Thank you!"
