“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire … and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth …. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever … that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished …” Book of Revelations

Arguably the greatest chamber music work of the 20th century was birthed in a German prisoner of war camp in 1941. Messiaen, captured by the German army during World War II, premiered this work outdoors in that very camp along with with 3 fellow prisoners on decrepit instruments.

Collide return to fortyfivedownstairs, joined by violinist Wilma Smith for this special performance.
