Framing a vivid rendition of the “Quartet for the End of Time” are two musical flights of fancy, an improvisation by the extraordinary clarinetist David Krakauer, and an electronic remix of the quartet by Socalled.
Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time is best experienced live — what great work isn’t?

At least that’s where it is on my shelf.
