Messiaen’s mind-blowing Turangalîla-symphonie takes listeners on a journey of extreme dynamic contrasts, from sensuous whispers to almost deafening force. Marin Alsop conducts more than 100 musicians in this rarely-heard masterwork, featuring the eerie keyboard instrument ondes Martenot with its otherworldly sci-fi sounds, as well as a dazzling performance by world-renowned pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
