This January, the BSO will present Olivier Messiaen's epic Turangalîla-symphonie with Marin Alsop. The piece features Nathalie Forget on the eerie-sounding ondes Martenot, a 20th-century electronic instrument. Watch Forget demonstrate before she performs with us in January! Our thanks to All Play Management and Claudia Lopez Lucia for creating this wonderful video.


Olivier Messiaen's Turangalîla-symphonie is one of the greatest pieces of music of the 20th century. Learn more about this rarely performed masterwork ahead of our concerts with Marin Alsop in January 2019.
