Messiaen: Quartet for the End of Time
Interned in a Nazi camp during the Second World War, French composer Olivier Messiaen wrote a piece for the only four instruments available to him: clarinet, violin, cello and piano. Premièred in 1941 by professional musicians who were prisoners of the camp, Quartet for the End of Time has become perhaps his most frequently performed work. Written in his visionary and surreal style and inspired by apocalyptic verses from the Bible’s Book of Revelation, it produces a spellbinding atmosphere.
