Notes & Reviews:

Messiaen's use of birdsong and Indian and Greek rhythms gave his music an immediately identifiable character. The "Quartet for the End of Time" was written in 1941 while Messiaen was imprisoned during the Second World War. It now stands as one of the most important works of the 20th century. This fine performance at budget price compares to most competing versions at full price. This is the perfect way to get aquainted with this 20th century masterpiece, if you don't already know it.
