  1. Field notes - Allan Gordon Bell
  2. 4'33'' - John Cage
  3. Quatuor pour la fin du temps, 'Quartet for the end of time' - Olivier Messiaen

A fusion of spellbinding contemporary sounds from one of the UK’s most exciting new instrumental ensembles.

At the heart of the programme is Messiaen’s visionary Quartet for the end of time, a dramatic exploration of the relationship between calmness and complexity, and a compelling expression of his deeply held catholic faith, written while he was a prisoner in a German concentration camp.

Messiaen’s masterpiece is paired with music inspired by the sounds and rhythms of the world around us in Juno-award-winning composer Allan Gordon Bell’s Field notes, which will be interspersed with extracts from T S Eliot’s Four Quartets, and John Cage’s iconic 4’33”, an invitation to hear the sounds that no one notices, and challenging us to consider whether silence can ever truly exist.
