Messiaen’s Turangalîla-Symphonie

Sci-Fi sounds, a supersized orchestra and love on a cosmic scale: Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra returns to Birmingham for Messiaen’s blockbuster Turangalîla-Symphonie. With Messiaen champion extraordinaire Steven Osborne as soloist, this vibrant and colourful celebration of all-consuming love definitely won’t pull any punches.

It is preceded here by Messiaen’s four sacred meditations for orchestra, L’ascension.
