“Everyone listened reverently, with an almost religious respect. …Not one person stirred” recalled the cellist who played the premiere of Messaien’s extraordinary Quartet for the End of Time. That concert, one of history’s most moving and unique, took place in a frigid hall at the Nazi camp where the composer was interned in the winter of 1941. From that moment on, the Quartet for the End of Time has been acclaimed as one of the 20th century’s greatest works, and this season’s performance commemorates the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Beginning with the creation, via Milhaud’s irrepressible, jazz-inflected score, the program then calls on two of France’s most remarkable composers — Boulez and Ravel — before concluding with Messiaen’s apocalyptic vision of the end of time.
