Ένα από τα ελάχιστα κοσμικά έργα ενός συνθέτη θρησκευτικής μουσικής [“τραγούδι αγάπης” το χαρακτηρίζει ο ίδιος], και μια από τα σημαντικότερες συμφωνικές δημιουργίες του 20ου αιώνα.
Το πρώτο μέρος, εδώ : OLIVIER MESSIAEN [1908-1992] TURANGALILA SYMPHONY, 1st MOVEMENT: INTRODUCTION Ακούμε το δεύτερο, “Chant D’ Amour 1” και το τρίτο μέρος, “Turangalila 1”. Την Ορχήστρα της Όπερας της Βαστίλης διευθύνει ο Myung-whun Chang.

One of the few secular works of a composer devoted to religious music [“a song of love” as he characterizes it himself], and one of the most important symphonic creations of the 20th century.
The 1st part is here: OLIVIER MESSIAEN [1908-1992] TURANGALILA SYMPHONY, 1st MOVEMENT: INTRODUCTION We hear the second, “Chant D’ Amour 1” and the third part “Turangalila 1”.
The Bastille Opera Orchestra is conducted by Myung-whun Chang.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
