Trident Ensemble, Miranda Cuckson & Friends: The End of Time
November 20, 2017

Trident Ensemble
Miranda Cuckson, violin
Raman Ramakrishnan, cello
Charles Neidich, clarinet
Aaron Wunsch, piano




This immersive, meditative musical journey brings together music from across eight centuries that speak to eternity—including Olivier Messiaen’s transcendent Quartet for the End of Time, featuring violinist Miranda Cuckson (“prodigiously talented”, New York Times), cellist Raman Ramakrishnan (“played with lovely authority”, New York Times), and pianist Aaron Wunsch (“masterful”, Hartford Courant). The ravishing male voices of the Trident Ensemble interweave vocal works from the ancient to the contemporary throughout the program.



Olivier Messiaen — Quartet for the End of Time

Pérotin - Sederunt principes

Francis Poulenc - Four Short Prayers of St. Francis d'Assisi

Reserve Seats

Most of our 300 seats are for those who just show up - but as a courtesy to our friends who work late, we've set aside 100 advance reservations for general admission. All other seats are 'first come, first served' and are available as early as 6:45 pm, when the doors open. Note that reservations are good for entrance only, not for specific seats. Reservations are void after 7:20pm.

If reservations are gone, don't worry — just show up! It is rare for Music Mondays to turn anyone away.

PATRONS and SUSTAINERS who have given $500 or more in the last year, and LEADERS and SPONSORS who have given $1500 or more in the last year may reserve two or four reserved seats respectively, in advance of the performances. Emailinfo@musicmondays.org to reserve seats. To donate, click here.
