Messiaen Quartet for the End of Time

  • Mountain Top Library 6093 Main Street Tannersville, NY, 12485 United States (map)

One of the most transcendent works of the twentieth century, Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time was written in a WWII prisoner of war camp, for the four instruments that happened to be available there: violin, cello, clarinet and piano. A deeply religious man, Messiaen was naturally drawn to thoughts of the apocalypse at that time, and created a work that evoked the terror and grandeur of the end of the world. Violinist Mari Lee leads a quartet of exceptional musicians to bring our audience to Messiaen’s incomparable vision of eternity.
