Ensemble

Quartet for the End of Time

MIKE WHEELER continues
his reports from Buxton

 

The Hallé Soloists' performance of Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps began in the middle. But the start of the fourth movement, 'Intermède', turned out to be the opening gambit in cellist Simon Turner's substantial illustrated introduction to the work (Buxton Festival, St John's Church, Buxton, UK, 20 July 2015).

Messiaen's Quartet is not just one of the blockbusters of twentieth-century chamber music...
