    Description

    Known mainly through Richard Wagner's eponymous opera, the myth of Tristan and Iseult of Celtic origin has been spread on our land by Norman and Breton poets for centuries. This legend inspired many composers, including Olivier Messiaen, who had composed simultaneously in 1945, stage music for Lucien Fabre's play "Tristan and Iseult" and "Harawi" with which he began composing a "Tristan Trilogy" of which two other works are the "Turangalïla-Symphonie" and the "Five Rechants". This program entitled "Joy and Despair" revolves around Isolde's famous Liebestod (Death of Love) by incorporating a play by Sir Harrison Birtwistle exploring the same universe on a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke.
