Quartet for the End of Time is an eight‐movement chamber work by French composer Olivier Messiaen. The work is written for clarinet (in B‐flat), violin, cello, and piano. Messiaen wrote the work while he was a prisoner of war in Germany, and it was first performed by his fellow prisoners. It is generally considered one of his most important works.
