Thumbnail for - Morlot Conducts Messiaen

Under the direction of maestro Ludovic Morlot, the SSO tackles Messiaen’s massive Turangalîla-Symphony for the first time, with pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Cynthia Millar on the ondes martenot (an early electronic keyboard often used in sci-fi scores). The 10-movement, 80-minute composition “oscillates between music that is lyrical and harsh,” says the symphony, but to Messiaen, it was simply a “song of love.”
