Quartet for the End of Time

Kings Place
Kings Cross, London
United Kingdom

London Sinfonietta

"The most inspiringly spiritual piece I've ever played, it takes you into an extraordinarily suspended world of great beauty several miles above us."
London Sinfonietta Principal Pianist, John Constable

More than half a century since it was premiered, Messiaen’s masterpiece still sounds as fresh and contemporary as it did at its first performance.

Having inspired a new wave of experimental spirituality in music, from composers including Pärt, Górecki and Penderecki, the Quartet’s rippling colours and meditative harmonies are as modern as they are timeless.
