The work of the French composer Olivier Messiaen in General and his Turangalila Symphony in particular have now long been considered milestones in musical history. The symphony’s premiere in 1949 was conducted by a 31-year-old Leonard Bernstein. He was standing in for Serge Koussevitzky, who had commissioned the work for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This recording by the Tonkunstler Orchestra and Yutaka Sado, who was once Leonard Bernstein’s assistant in Vienna, joins many other productions on the in-house label the orchestra founded in 2016. The CD was recorded live during the 17-18 concert season in the Vienna Musikverein with two Messiaen experts from France as soloists: Valerie Hartmann-Claverie at the ondes martenot and Roger Muraro at the piano. The trilingual booklet offers music-lovers the opportunity to deepen their listening experience in German, English or Japanese.
