info

Quatuor pour la fin du Temps is one of the most touching pages of the entire work by Messiaen. It was composed in the nazi lager of Goerlitz, where the composer was imprisoned in winter 1940-1941. The work is inspired by the vision of the Angel announcing the end of Time, as narrated at the beginning of the tenth chapter of the Apocalypse of John. The quartet was performed on the 15th of january 1941 in the lager, in front of 5000 prisoners. In this cd the work is performed by Francesco Malatesta (violino), Ugo Gennarini (clarinetto), Francesco Sorrentino (violoncello), Cristofer Giorgilli (pianoforte).
