Ravel Piano Trio in A minor
Messiaen Quartet for the End of Time

Some of the most beautiful music has been inspired by the most harrowing of circumstances, none more so than Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Composed while Messiaen was interned in a prisoner of war camp in 1940, it received one of the most unique premieres in all music history when it was performed to an audience of fellow prisoners and German guards on a cold January night in a hut at the centre of war-torn Nazi Germany. Decades on, its heartfelt, expressive power is as vivid and as relevant as ever. Celebrated for their fiery and intelligent performances, the Amatis Trio with clarinettist Annelien Van Wauve bring their exceptional musicianship to this compelling apocalyptic musical vision of the future.
