“My subject is War, and the pity of War.” Benjamin Britten composed his War Requiem for the new Coventry Cathedral, but it’s become one of the defining achievements of modern music, a timeless and profoundly moving exploration of man’s inhumanity to man. The CBSO gave its world premiere: this music is in our blood, and every performance is special to us. Be there as Andris Nelsons and an international team of soloists bring this deeply personal masterpiece to Symphony Hall before taking the work on tour.

6.15pm Pre-concert talk: Britten: War Requiem – CBSO Chorus Director Simon Halsey shares his experience of Britten’s choral masterpiece.
