Post Concert Question Time
Starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Vasily Petrenko, Steven Osborne and Nathalie Forget.

Imagine a 1940s film score, an explosive rhythmic workout, a spectacular piano concerto and a blissed-out hymn to love on a cosmic scale. Now add a super-size orchestra, virtuoso pianist Steven Osborne and a vintage electronic instrument straight out of science fiction. Got all that? Then you’re not even half-way to imagining Messiaen’s mind-boggling Turangalîla Symphony: 80 minutes of music from beyond your wildest dreams, performed by the Orchestra for the first time this millennium. Vasily Petrenko loves it – and he will introduce the concert to tell you why!

There will be no interval during this concert.

See close up concert on Friday 26 January if you want to hear more ondes martenot.

Philharmonia Orchestra's Caroline Potter gets a tour inside an ondes Martenot with Stéphane Vaiedelich, Laboratory Manager at the Musée de la Musique, Cité de Musique, Paris.
