birds on piano

$4  > Olivier Messiaen 'Catalogue d'oiseaux' [catalogue of birds] 4 lp box set bought at the same op shop on the same day as the Xenakis box in a previous post . this beautifully packaged box by french composer Messiaen [1908 - 1992] played by pianist Yvonne Loriod on the Record Society of Australia label [!] is a nice thing to have & it's a great listen too
