About this Performance

After the sensuousness of Debussy’s Prelude, Michael Tilson Thomas leads the sometimes lively, sometimes dreamy early Messiaen work with hints of birdsong, featuring the theremin-like ondes martenot and the treble voices of the Los Angeles Master Chorale singing the composer’s own mystical Christian words. Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs Debussy’s remarkable Fantaisie, an Impressionist piano concerto. The LA Master Chorale again joins forces with the LA Phil in Heitor Villa-Lobos’ most performed of his 14 Chôros, a dramatic work filled with Latin percussion and rhythms.
