Messiean’s Quartet for the End of Time, Livestream from the Temple of Dendur

Tuesday April 20, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

New York Philharmonic principal players Carter Brey and Anthony McGill are joined by pianist Inon Barnatan and former New York Philharmonic music director Alan Gilbert for a nuanced and heart-wrenching performance of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Inspired by texts from the Book of Revelation, the work was composed during Messiaen’s internment in a German prisoner-of-war camp and was first performed by and for fellow prisoners in 1941. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur provides the solemn setting for a work The New Yorker calls “the most ethereally beautiful music of the 20th century.”
