Members of the Charlotte Symphony perform Olivier Messiaen’s epic wartime Quartet for the End of Time. Endlessly deep and filled with haunting passages, the work has been recognized as one of the most important chamber music works of the 20th century. This work is paired with a new orchestration of Stockhausen’s Tierkreis (“Zodiac”), which consists of 12 character pieces based on the astrological signs.
Docent-led tours of featured works of art are offered at 12:45 pm. Please make reservations for the tour by calling the NCMA Box Office, (919) 715-5923, at least one week in advance.
