This concert is presented as a tribute to Olivier Messiaen, who died April 27, 1992.

In this program entirely dedicated to Olivier Messiaen, who left us in 1992, the OSM wishes to underscore the inestimable contribution of this major composer to the history of 20th-century music. Messiaen himself described his large-scale Turangalîla-Symphonie as a love song. Monumental, exceptional and immensely poignant, this work will stir the innermost depth of your soul!
