Ineffable Grief: Exploring Berio's "O King" and Messien's "Quartet for the End of Time"

Ineffable Grief: How many times have we witnessed or personally experienced an event too great for words, when we can neither muster the words nor find the "right" words to fully express how we feel? This week we explore the ways Berio's  "O King" and Messien's "Quartet for the End of Time" respond to the specific tragic events of their time and attempt to "find the right words" through their music.
