Olivier Messiaen wrote of his epic Turangalîla-symphonie: ‘It is a love song, a hymn to joy; love that is fatal, irresistible, transcending everything, suppressing everything outside; joy that is superhuman, overwhelming, blinding, unlimited.” Andreas Haefliger and Cynthia Millar join Lan Shui, the SSO and combined forces for this radiant 75-minute symphony of 10 movements.
