Musicians from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire bring to you a very special lunchtime performance of Messiaen’s 'Quartet for the End of Time'.

In 1940, Messiaen composed this iconic work whilst imprisoned at Görlitz Stalag VIIIA prison camp in WWII. Its premiere was given in the camp by Messiaen himself with three of his fellow inmates to an audience of guards and prisoners.
