Review: "In the Dark: Messiaen"
What's on in Cape Town, 20 November 2015
"Messiaen’s compositional talents were greatly explored in his famous flute work Le Merle Noir. Here, Minter displayed impeccable intonation and command of the flute’s various tone colours. The work is founded in birdsong and both Minter and Enderstein developed and maintained a very natural dialogue where one could envisage a bird interacting with its environment."
