John Constable’s YouTube of the Month

Principal Pianist John Constable has chosen Olivier Messiaen’s Poèmes Pour Mi as his YouTube of the month:

“It will be very exciting performing Messiaen’s Quartet For The End Of Time at Kings Place later this month. One of the first Messiaen pieces I got to know and love when I heard it performed several times sung by my friend Felicity Palmer and conducted by Pierre Boulez was Poèmes Pour Mi. Here it is sung by Renee Fleming with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Alan Gilbert.”
