UNC Music Department Faculty Recital: Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time 

When: Sun., April 10, 7:30 p.m. 2016
The Quartet for the End of Time for piano, clarinet, violin, and cello is a miracle. It was written in 1941 while Messiaen was being held in a German prisoner-of-war camp. It opens with a mobile of bird songs and ascetic chords, presaging the mystical Catholic visions to come. Those take the form of pellucid lines that simply hover, never approaching anything resembling an arrival or resolution. Time really does cease to exist. It’s simultaneously ecstatic and contemplative. —Dan Ruccia
