Olivier Messiaen - Quatuor pour la fin du temps

Messiaen (1908-1922) was a French composer, who is widely regarded as one of the most important of the past one hundred years, and yet remains largely unknown to a considerable percentage of the classical music lovers community. I have selected his awesome Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the end of time) for violin, cello, clarinet and piano, from 1941. Relevant links below.
