Quartet for the End of Time
Art triumphs over adversity in the dark night of the soul. Clarinettist Jonathan Cohen joins the celebrated NZTrio for a meditative journey through one of Messiaen’s earliest masterworks.
Composed and premiered whilst Messiaen was interned at a prisoner of war camp during WWII, this evocative work transcends time and space, and is filled with the jubilant song of birds flying free from captivity.
