Title: Quatuor Pour la Fin Du Temps
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Olivier Messiaen is one of the great composers of the 20th century and the Quartet for the End of Time is probably his most original and poignant chamber work. The piece as recorded on this release pushes all kinds of boundaries, first of all through it's genesis in a concentration camp, through the unusual combination of the instruments, and then through the performance by Martin Fröst himself who is known for pushing musical & technical boundaries: "There is something approaching the supernatural about his command of his instrument" said The New York Times. Martin Fröst and Janine Jansen first met 16 years ago and the first piece they ever played together was the Quartet for the End of Time. Torleif Thedeen was also part of that group. This piece left them with a deep sense of connection. They just waited for the right time and circumstances to record it.
