Manchester Collective: The End of Time at The Stoller Hall, Manchester, 2 December 2017, from £12.00 - Book now
Manchester Collective continues its programming of ambitious concerts with this performance in the Stoller Hall – where the group has recently become the first resident ensemble.
The event takes its title from Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, a piece written by the French composer while he was imprisoned in a Nazi POW camp in 1941. Premiered by his fellow inmates to other prisoners as well as guards, it is widely regarded as a harrowing masterpiece of the last century.
The bill also features some light relief in the form of Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Cello, plus Stravinsky’s arrangement of A Soldier’s Tale, for Clarinet Trio.
