Olivier Messiaen
La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ

While consolidating his reputation as one of the most talented maestros of his generation, Myung-Whun Chung’s affinity with the work of Messiaen has made him an expert on the French composer’s music. Their proximity led Messiaen to choose Chung to conduct the world premiere of his Concert à Quatre in 1994, even dedicating the piece to the South Korean maestro. In the Grand Auditorium, Chung will direct one of the composer’s most impressive religious pieces, La Transfiguration de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ, a commission for the Gulbenkian Foundation premiered in 1969.
