2. He gave up the piano to enter into priesthood. (He had my full admiration for that).
Thanks for mentioning his Messiaen. I didn't know Kras recorded it.
There is/was an Eloquence 2cd available (listed as not available currently) on Amazon, by Kars of Messiaen selections from Vingt Regards (recorded from live concert in Amsterdam 1976), and the Debussy preludes. I was seriously thinking about it several months ago. Kars is still a priest afaik.
Kars also recorded Debussy/Delius (Fantaisie/Concerto) on Decca with Sir Alexander Gibson.
