In march 2016, Jean-Luc Ayroles recorded one of the greatest masterpiece of Olivier Messiaen, "Vingt regards sur l'enfant Jésus". He presented his new album, in which his admiration and fascination towards Messiaen was keenly felt. The pianist played here "le baiser de l'enfant Jésus", music in which he expressed the delicacy, almost sensual aspect of this music, and conjugated it brilliantly with the strength of a mystery, the mystery of incarnation : a powerful connection between the body and the mind, that has been extremely well perceived and interpreted by Jean-Luc Ayroles. When you listen and watch this video clip, can't you feel that playing music is a mystery as well, intertwining gesture and the spirit that accompanies it, and gives you thrills ?
