Composed while a prisoner of war, Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time is one of the most moving testaments ever written to the freedom and resilience of the human imagination. Through composing it, he said that “in the midst of 30,000 prisoners, I was the only man who was not one.”
Hallé leader Lyn Fletcher is joined by Rosa Campos-Fernandez, clarinet, Simon Turner, cello, and Paul Janes, piano.
This concert is free, no need to book just turn up.
