Quatuor pour la fin du temps

Het Collectief

With the Quatuor pour la fin du temps, the Brussels ensemble Het Collectief presents one of the most striking works of 20th century chamber music.

Olivier Messiaen wrote this apocalyptic vision in 1941 in the Stalag IV prisoner of war camp in Silesia. In addition to an original palette of timbres and harmonies, the composer creates his own rhythmic language that, in combination with sometimes extremely slow tempos, manipulates the perception of time. Het Collectief prepares the ears with two popular pieces from the traditional French repertoire. With the music of Debussy and Ravel, this mix of strings and wind instruments immerses the ears in a multicolored, intoxicating sound world.
