Levon Chilingirian leads a soul-searching programme of music composed from inside two 20th century prison camps. Messiaen’s titanic Quatuor pour la fin du temps performed in the Stalag VIII-A, a prisoner-of-war camp in Görlitz in 1941, follows Edgar Bainton’s dazzlingly harmonic op. 26 string quartet, composed at the Ruhleben internment camp in 1915.

For over four decades the Chilingirian String Quartet has thrilled critics and audiences around the world with its vibrant, virtuosic performances of classical and contemporary chamber music.
