5. October, 10.15pm University Church

Late night concert – FOR THE END OF TIME

Messiaen’s unique quartet, famously premiered in a prisoner-of-war camp by the composer and three of his fellow inmates, transcends the most terrible of circumstances and touches the divine. Here, according to the composer, are a ‚tangle of rainbows‘; a colossal angel with one foot each on sea and earth; music of ‚formidable granite‘ and ‚light, stars, jubilant songs‘. An out-of-body late-night experience! Messiaen Quartet for the End of Time

Admission free – Donations at the door
