Unison Media's acclaimed concert series The Crypt Sessions will kick off its fourth season on February 5, with a performance of Olivier Messiaen's “Quartet for the End of Time”. The piece was composed in a Nazi prison camp, where it was premiered in the pouring rain by starving inmates playing on broken instruments. To this day, it stands as one of the most utterly profound and transcendent meditations on mortality and eternity performed by a luxury-cast ensemble of Stefan Jackiw (violin), Jay Campbell (cello), Yoonah Kim (clarinet), and Orion Weiss (piano). Tickets are on sale now. For more information visit:  WWW.DEATHOFCLASSICAL.COM
