Description
The fine playing of Ensemble Incanto earned this recording three stars from BBC Music. Olivier Messiaen composed his Quartet for the End of Time while being held captive by the Germans during World War II. It premiered on January 15, 1941, before an audience of nearly 400 POWs and prison guards. The composer performed the piece alongside fellow prisoners Jean Le Boulaire on violin, Henri Akoka on clarinet, and Etienne Pasquier on cello. The instruments are unusual for a quartet, but Messiaen chose them because they were what was available in Stalag VIIIA in Gorlitz. The work consists of eight movements for the six days of creation, sanctified by the Sabbath on the seventh. Ultimately, "this repose extends into eternity and becomes the eighth day of eternal light, of unalterable peace," wrote Messiaen.
