PROGRAM

Shostakovich [masked])
Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67 (1944)

Messiaen [masked])
Quartet for the End of Time (1941)

Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and French composer Olivier Messiaen were both deeply affected by the tragedies of World War II. Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 was composed in the midst of the War, and like many of his works, seems to comment on the tenor of the times with eerie instrumental effects and a tortured “Dance of Death.” Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time contains some of the most ethereally beautiful music from the last century. It was first premiered on a freezing January night in 1941 at a prisoner-of-war camp in Görlitz, Germany where the composer was held captive.

    Messiaen died in 1992, not 1922, by the way.
