Transcendence

St. Mark's Church, Washington DC

Bartok’s driving zeal and Pärt’s sea of calm set the stage for one of the defining works of twentieth-century chamber music. Composed while Messiaen was a German prisoner-of-war from 1940-42, his quartet is visionary in both its compositional style and its merging of the earthly with the spiritual.
