The Quartet for the End of Time was written in 1941 while Messiaen was imprisioned during the Second World War. Using the most sparing & at first sight incompatible instrumentation, he created a haunting musical image of hope in the midst of despair.

The Theme & Variations for violin & piano is an equally characteristic & immediately accessible work.
