Two generations experience the tilting of time together

'Make the work you want, in a style of your own choosing, with a duration you want, the instrumentation you want, and I will not impose any deadline on you.' Messiaen was given this assignment by Russian conductor Sergei Koussevitsky. The result was the Turangalîla symphony, a work larger than life. As if Messiaen was trying to capture his understanding of life in music.

18 participants with diverse roots from 8 to 67 were given the same assignment by us. They were inspired by Messiaen's work, and coached by top musicians Osama Abdulrasol and Hilde De Clerck. Curious about what they have come up with? Don't miss this showcase and book a free ticket.
