Ondine’s new recording of Olivier Messiaen’s magnum opus Turangalîla-Symphonie features the Finnish Radio Symphony led by Hannu Lintu, along with renowned soloists Angela Hewitt on piano as well as Valérie Hartmann-Claverie, who plays the rare electro-acoustic ondes Martenot. +Within the microcosm of this vast work, Messiaen provides continuity and cohesion with recurrent musical images and reference points, redolent of the leit motifs, idées fixes or cyclic themes of the great Romantic composers.
