You may hear one of the most powerful pieces of music of the 20th century, The Quartet for the End of Time by Olivier Messiaen, at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 30 at Mount Vernon Music Hall.
Written when Messiaen and three other musicians were held in a German prison camp in the early 1940s, the piece was inspired by verses in the biblical book of Revelation. See the March 20 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information.
