Olivier Messiaen's 'Turangalila-symphonie' is performed by Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra under Thierry Fischer, with pianist Stefan Stroissnig and Cynthia Millar, ondes martenot.
(Messiaen's great symphonic work, first presented after World War II, shocked audiences with its ecstatic music and opulent orchestrations. Inspired by the Tristan myth, it channels intense feelings of ecstasy and erotic love using a culmination of all the techniques Messiaen had developed so far.)
