Ensemble Connect by Fadi Kheir
Ensemble Connect takes you on a journey that reveals Bach’s magnificent mastery of counterpoint, Shulamit Ran’s contemporary view of that genius, and Messiaen’s unique musical language. Messiaen achieved transcendence in his Quartet for the End of Time, using Eastern rhythms, snippets of bird song, and spectacular colors to express his deep faith in a resulting work of timeless beauty.
