Saint-Saëns, Fauré and Messiaen

Robert Plane (clarinet) and the Gould Piano Trio

Listeners will be surprised to learn that all three works in this fascinating French programme were composed within a timespan of just 20 years. Both Saint-Saens and Faure were nearing the end of their illustrious careers when they composed these intimate and touching works. Quartet for the End of Time transports us to another world entirely, a unique concert experience in which Messiaen’s vivid depictions leave an audience stunned by its power and beauty.
