These are two videos produced by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. They are fine examples of what’s possible when the visual and musical arts are sympathetically combined. The artist shown at work is Zack Smithey. The music is the final two movements of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, one of the masterpieces of the Twentieth Century. The performers are David Shifrin (clarinet), Daniel Hope (violin), Paul Watkins (cello) and Gilbert Kalish (piano).
