Quartet for the End of Time

performed by the After Hours Quartet
Friday March 22, 2019 — 7:30 p.m.

The main focus of this concert will be Olivier Messiaen’s ethereal Quartet for the End of Time. Written in 1941, in a German prison camp for an ad hoc ensemble of fellow prisoners, Messiaen’s eight-movement work is scored for violin, clarinet, cello and piano. The composer interleaves representations of birdsong from around the camp with visions of the apocalypse form the Bible – juxtapositionsing the everyday with the eternal, to chilling effect.
