Alice Sara Ott continues her series of musical collaborations with Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, a landmark work of the 20th century.
Written when the composer was a prisoner of war in Germany in 1941, Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time is an astonishing musical statement – ethereal, intricate and questioning, sometimes spare and haunting, sometimes furiously rhythmic. It was written for the instruments Messiaen had available to him at the time – piano, clarinet, violin and cello, brought together in varying combinations – and was inspired by the musicians he lived alongside in the camp, fitting part of Alice Sara Ott's series of BBC Radio 3 Concerts which celebrate the power of making music with others.
