Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time represents a triumph of faith and creativity in the face of an uncertain future. When Messiaen, conscripted in the French army during World War II, was captured by the German forces and sent to the Stalag 8A prisoner-of-war camp outside Görlitz, he stowed a precious folder of beloved sketches close to his chest. These cherished materials, strung together with phrases from the Book of Revelation, inspired his masterpiece, which he and his fellow prisoners managed to premiere while in captivity.
