Faust, Queyras, Widmann & Aimard - Palau de la Música Catalana -Music
11/30/2022

Two strings, one wind instrument and a piano are the stars of this concert, since Isabelle Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Jörg Widmann and Pierre-Laurent Aimard are all virtuosos on their own instrument. Together, they will perform Oliver Messiaen's “Quartet for the End of Time”, and other pieces for violin, cello, clarinet and piano. This work by Oliver Messiaen was composed in prison and performed in front of the prisoners who, like him, had been imprisoned by the Nazi government. Messiaen wrote on the score the inscription “ there will be no more time, and this phrase would extend to his entire musical oeuvre. Along with this melancholy piece, the four virtuosos will perform works by Berg, Ravel, Widmann and Carter.
