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
WASO Chorus
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)
