“My subject is war, and the pity of war.” Benjamin Britten took sacred words and the poetry of
the First World War, and combined them into a masterpiece that echoes down the decades: bold, poetic, and devastatingly emotional. One week before Britten’s hundredth birthday, Peter Oundjian, three great soloists, and our two superb choruses come together in this unique commemorative performance of the War Requiem.
