Thirteen works, eight composers and no less for Messiaen Festival’s magistral 20th anniversary concert.

In this magical night, the many musicians in this set-up perform works by some of the foremost electronic composers of the day as well as some up-and-coming musicians. Tristan Murail has the honour of opening this concert with Nathalie Forget. They perform his own work, Mach 2.5 for two Ondes Martenot (1971). Next, the pianist Flore Merlin, plays his Three Poems for two Ondes Martenot (1935) by André Jolivet. Next comes a newly discovered work by Olivier Messiaen, Première Monodie in ¼ Tone (1938). Next we hear Nathalie Forget performing The Conquest of the Antarctic (1982) by Tristan Murail and a new work, Tox (2017), commissioned by the Daniel Figols Cuevas Festival. After, we hear ondist on Tigres de verre (1974), Territoires de l'Oubli for solo piano (1976), both by Murail. 

In the second part of the concert, Franck Bedrossian conducts A Chamber to be Haunted (2017) with violinists Hae Sun Kang and Aya Kono. The violin and electronics then come together for Sampo Haapamäki's Logo (2013). Pierre Boulez's Dialogue pour l'Ombre double (1985) ends this magical night with a blistering saxophonic sound.
