Written to celebrate the Olivier Messiaen centennial in 2008, Lieuwen scored Gulfstream for the same instruments as Messiaen’s landmark Quartet for the End of Time: clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. The work is a musical representation of the Gulfstream current, conceived as the composer reflected upon its influence on weather and global climate change.
