[Pierre-Laurent Aimard is] inspired by Boulez: "Music-making with him was revelatory. I went home, still burning and cried for an entire night".

In Paul Griffiths' words "the modest splendour of snow and the mighty splendour of the sun" made him aware of the awesomeness of the Transfiguration, a scene he then transformed into the brilliant sounds of the concertante group, like so many crystals glistening and thawing on the snow covered mountain caps. The recording gives full rein to such passages as it does to the Brucknerian weight of the low brass writing and solemn chorales that conclude each half.
