Quartet for the End of Time brings the culmination of the New York Philharmonic’s Messiaen Week (March 7-13), which honors the legacy of French composer and organist Olivier Messiaen through performances of his works, from the symphonic to solo works, as well as music by those whom he influenced. Inon is currently in his second season as the orchestra’s inaugural Artist-in-Association, which was created by Alan Gilbert and spotlights an emerging artist over the course of three seasons through both concerto and chamber music performances and by cultivating a relationship between the artist, the orchestra, and the audience.
