"Never was I listened to with such rapt attention and comprehension." – Olivier Messaien
Now that I have your attention: the Montclaire String Quartet will be performing Olivier Messaien’s Quartet for the End of Time this weekend.
What kept the audience so engaged in Messiaen’s music? Read all about it in “Warning—This entry may compel you to attend a concert” from the WV Symphony blog, where Betty King tells the story, along with comments from Boston Conservatory professor Karl Paulnack.
For more from the Montclaires, listen to Jim Lange's story about them preparing to play George Crumb’s Black Angels.
After playing Messiaen and Mozart on Saturday, the Montclaire String Quartet has one more program this season. You can now also find out what they will be up to next season.
