Turangalîla-symphonie

Sci-Fi sounds, a supersized orchestra and love on a cosmic scale: Sakari Oramo returns to Birmingham with a 100-strong BBC Symphony Orchestra for Messiaen’s blockbuster Turangalîla-Symphonie. Birmingham audiences already know how Oramo can raise the roof; and his new partnership with the BBC Symphony Orchestra has made them sit up and listen in London too. With Messiaen champion extraordinaireSteven 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.


5:45pm: Pre-concert conversation with Sakari Oramo. This conversation will be signed by a British Sign Language interpreter.
