« I have had the great pleasure of hearing Jean-Luc Ayroles play the Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant Jesus de Messiaen. It was a masterful interpretation and technical accomplishment. Having heard others play this gargantuan and difficult work I can attest to Mr. Ayroles total command of this music and to his ability to make it come brilliantly alive. » John Nelson, conductor

"Jean-Luc Ayroles has the reputation of being a specialist of Messiaen’s music, and his account of the composer’s huge piano work Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant Jésus is one evidence more of his skills. Ayroles’s performance is as strong on introspection as it is on bravura
