One of the greatest figures of 20th century music, Olivier Messiaen found inspiration for his works in religious and mystical symbols with striking rhythms. An enthusiastic ornithologist, he weaved into his music the songs of birds from all over the world, and is known for his harmonic explorations. Messiaen's "Improvisations" is performed by the composer on organ at the Paris-Trinity Church. His "Quartet for the End of Time," composed in 1940 during his captivity in a German prisoner of war camp, is performed by the Messiaen Quartet at the Vaux De Cernay Abbey.
