If you had to pick a single musical work to reflect the energy, chaos and trauma of the 20th century, you could do a lot worse than Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. This is chamber music at its most dramatic and unfiltered – it’s a pure distillation of the time in which it was written.
To perform this harrowing epic and much more besides, the Collective are thrilled to welcome musical treasure Kathryn Stott to join them for the first time.
