WVIK/QCSO Signature Series I: War Reflections

October 26 @ 7:30 pm CDT

Commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Veteran’s day with two works inspired by human experiences during the World Wars.  Olivier Messiaen composed Quartet for the End of Time while a prisoner of War in German captivity. The piece was first performed at the camp outdoors in the rain by Messiaen’s fellow prisoners.  Brian Baxter’s Ho sentito di una terra distante is a song cycle based on the diary of an Italian American soldier, Bernardino Bernardini, using lyrics from Marcella Bernard’s imaginary opera “His Military Life” to accompany the novel “Pro Patria”.
