Salonen Conducts Messiaen

8:00 PM
Debussy, Ravel, Messiaen
Thursday, May 21, 2015

Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts two major 20th-century masterpieces for piano and orchestra. Prepare for dazzling fireworks from French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet in Ravel’s Concerto in G Major, a virtuosic work shot through with brilliance and clarity. Messiaen’s unparalleled Turangalîla-symphonie is a life-affirming, exuberant celebration of love and passion.

This program is part of the 2015 Reveries and Passions Festival.

The CSO is grateful to Julie and Roger Baskes, lead sponsors of our Reveries and Passions Festival.
