To help celebrate the international release of the New York-based Founders ensemble's new album, "Songs for the End of Time Vol.1," The Violin Channel is giving away 5 fresh–off–the–press personally autographed CD copies.

The disc features an arrangement of Olivier Messiaen’s "Quartet for the End of Time" by Brandon Ridenour & Ben Russell.

The ensemble is made up of violinist and vocalist Ben Russell, trumpeter and keyboardist Brandon Ridenour, cellist and vocalist Hamilton Berry, clarinetist Yoonah Kim, and bassist Greg Chudzik.

"Messiaen's 'Quartet for the End of Time' has been an inspiration to us as performers and composers ever since we first heard it," violinist Ben Russell told The Violin Channel.

"Its melodies, rhythms, and harmonies have given us a bounty of ideas for our own compositions and arrangements. We've also been deeply inspired by the story behind its writing. While imprisoned during World War II and surrounded by great despair, Messiaen wrote his quartet with unflinching peace and hope for a better world.

"With our contemporary arrangement, we are re-proclaiming his bold message of peace and hope during these difficult times."

Entries close on Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
