Notes & Reviews:
In 2008, the ensemble performed Olivier Messiaen's Quartet for the end of time at the Salzburg Festival. Composed in 1940 in a German prisoner-of-war camp, Messiaen reached the pinnacle of his composing career at the age of 31. In this work he conveys his spiritual interpretation of musical time and plays of color.Notes & Reviews:
