Joie du Sang des Étoiles

Youth orchestras from MY country play things like a medley of John Williams' greatest hits, or Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride. Youth orchestras like the Joven Orquesta Nacional de Gran Bretaña from Spain play things like Joie du Sang des Étoiles, the fifth movement of Olivier Messiaen's Turangalîla Symphony, and quite admirably I might add. I think I like your country sometimes more than my country.
