Labor Day Benefit Concert
3 PM: Music Mountain Artistic Director, Oskar Espina-Ruiz, clarinet, joins forces with Merz Trio to present Messiaen’s iconic Quartet for the End of Time, considered to be one the most important twentieth-century chamber music compositions. Written and premiered whilst in a German prisoner-of-war camp at the beginning of WWII, the work draws inspiration from birdsong, the composer's deep faith, and Indian ragas. The program also includes works by Korngold, Britten, Shostakovich, and Ravel.
