In 1940 a 31 year-old Olivier Messiaen was captured during the German Invasion. In 1941, in the Stalag prisoner-of-war camp in Görlitz, Germany, a masterpiece of ethereal beauty was born, Quartet for the End of Time.  Considered one of the greatest works of the twentieth-century, Messiaen was inspired by his deep Catholic faith and wrote the piece is written for the unusual combination of clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, reflecting the players available to him at the camp. This program also features another twentieth-century masterpiece by Steve Reich, a pioneer of the minimalist music movement. The works three movements (AmericaBefore the War, EuropeDuring the War and After the War) transport the listener through an emotional and powerful journey.
