Richardson Chamber Players; "Art & Memory"
Sponsored by: Princeton University Concerts.
Part of "MEMORY AND THE WORK OF ART"
Princeton's resident ensemble of performance faculty, distinguished guest artists and supremely talented students play works by Ravel, Chausson and Messiaen. A highlight of this concert will be Messiaen's "Quartet for the End of Time," written in 1940 while the composer was in captivity in a stalag in Silesia. In a triumph of the human spirit, the composer survived, as did his composition. Overcoming the worst degradation human beings can devise to create everlasting beauty? Priceless.
