Overview

Experience one of the most innovative works of the 20th century. The title comes from two Sanskrit words: "turanga" means movement and rhythm, and "Lîla" refers to a cosmic game. Renowned pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins Marin Alsop in a discussion and performance of Messiaen’s great masterwork for over 100 musicians, featuring the eerie keyboard ondes Martenot with its otherworldly sci-fi sounds. This 90-minute Off The Cuff concert provides more insight into a single work, followed by a question-and-answer session.
