As rarely performed as a total eclipse is observed are the two works that will be heard on this program, the “Quartet for the End of Time” by Olivier Messiaen and the “L’histoire du Soldat” by Igor Stravinsky. In scheduling these two masterpieces of the 20th century, Artistic Director Gary Levinson has fittingly titled this concert In the Theater of Life. Both of these works were written during the time of dramatic upheaval in the lives of the composers. Messiaen was a prisoner-of-war in a German camp and Stravinsky was living in exile in Switzerland after being forced to leave Russia after the outbreak of WWI. This is the first time in the 30 year history of CMSFW that "L’histoire" has been presented.

The Messiaen will be performed by Gary Levinson, violin; Andrés Díaz, cello; Frank Cohen, clarinet; Jihye Chang, piano. The ensemble for "L’histoire" includes Gary Levinson, violin; Frank Cohen, clarinet; Dallas Symphony principals Nicolas Tsolainos, double bass; Scott Walzel, bassoon; trumpet; Chris Oliver, trombone; and Doug Howard, percussion.
