Taking place in Cleve Gray’s Threnody: Forty Years, this event pairs Gray’s intense artistic vision with one of music’s towering achievements, the Quartet for the End of Time, composed by the French master Olivier Messiaen and performed by the internationally acclaimed ensemble, Music from Copland House. Written while its composer was jailed in a German prison camp during World War II and premiered in a barracks on an icy, winter day in 1941, the landmark Quartet for the End of Time was inspired by nature, religious devotion, and the Book of Revelation’s vibrant description of the Apocalypse. This special concert also includes music by Aaron Copland and Grammy Award-winner Richard Danielpour, and will be followed by a reception with the artists. The performance will be followed by a reception for musicians and guests. Members $25, Non-Members $35. For tickets call (914) 251-6125.
