Quartett für das Ende der Zeit

Olivier Messiaen: „Quatuor pour la fin du temps“
Žilvinas Brazauskas Clarinet Diana Tishchenko Violin Friedrich Thiele Cello Lauma Skride Piano
Olivier Messiaen „Quatuor pour la fin du temps“ für Klarinette, Violine, Violoncello und Klavier

Outstanding young musicians from Ukraine, Lithuania and Germany will perform a work that is literally “survival music” and a sign of hope: Messiaen’s “Quatuor pour la fin du temps” draws on his deep Catholic spirituality and motifs from the biblical apocalypse. The third movement is a clarinet solo that was first heard in June 1940 in a field near Nancy, where thousands of French soldiers, including the performing clarinettist and composer Olivier Messiaen, were held prisoner. The complete work was premiered in January 1941 in a prison camp near Görlitz, where the two and other musicians were transported.
