BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Alice Sara Ott & Friends

NB Change of Artist

Alice Sara Ott

Alice Sara Ott concludes her series of musical collaborations with Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, a landmark work of the 20th century.

Written when the composer was a prisoner of war in Germany in 1941, Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time is an astonishing musical statement – ethereal, intricate and questioning, sometimes spare and haunting, sometimes furiously rhythmic. Written for the instruments Messiaen had available to him at the time – piano, clarinet, violin and cello, brought together in varying combinations – it forms a fitting end to Alice Sara Ott's series of BBC Radio 3 Concerts, which celebrate the power of making music with others.

Change of Artist

Violinist Nemanja Radulović has withdrawn from this performance due to health reasons. We are very grateful to Mari Samuelsen for stepping in to replace him. Please also note that, in a change to some early listings, Andreas Ottensamer is no longer able to perform in this concert.
