A masterpiece for peace
Benjamin BRITTEN War Requiem
Asher Fisch conductor
Musicians of the Australian National Academy of Music
Elena Perroni soprano
Paul O’Neill tenor
James Clayton baritone
Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Chorus
Aquinas College Schola Cantorum
Furious, tender, harrowing and harmonious, Britten’s anti-war anthem decries the senselessness of the battlefield. Interweaving the poignant words of celebrated war poet Wilfred Owen with the Latin text of the Requiem mass, Britten laments the collective bloodshed and sorrow with a vital and visceral oratorio on the hell of war.
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra in collaboration with Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM)
