Commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of the United States Declaration of Independence, this was inspired by the composer's tours around Utah's magnificent landscapes, including Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks, which so affected him with their beauty.

Messiaens "Quartett für das Ende der Zeiten" ist eines der bedeutendsten Kammermusikwerke des 20. Jahrhundert. Diese apokalyptische Komposition entstand 1941 im deutschen Kriegsgefangenenlager Görlitz. Wegen seines klanglichen Reichtums lässt das Werk nicht die furchtbaren Umstände seiner Entstehung erahnen. Die beteiligten Instrumente (Klarinette, Violine, Violoncello und Klavier) werden in den insgesamt 8 Sätzen abwechslungsreich kombiniert. Neben diesem Schlüsselwerk enthält diese Einspielung weitere Kammermusikwerke Messiaens: Thema und Variationen und die Fantasie (Ersteinspielung) für Violine und Klavier, Pièce für Klavier und Streichquartett sowie Le Merle noir (Die Amsel) für Flöte und Klavier, das als Prüfungsstück für das Pariser Conservatoire 1952 entstanden ist und eines der wichtigsten Flötenwerke des vergangenen Jahrhunderts ist
