With over 100 musicians on stage and a duration of 80 minutes, it is possibly one of the largest orchestral works ever written.
The work features one of the earliest electronic instruments, the ondes martenot, which was invented in 1928.
Ondist, Jacob Abela talks to Arts Monday about this extraordinary instrument, and about his love of Messiaen’s work.
