Concert Information

‘My subject is war, and the pity of war.’

Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem interweaves the poetry of Wilfred Owen with the words of the Requiem Mass in a deeply moving and powerful work. Written for the consecration of Coventry Cathedral after its destruction in the Second World War, this great work remains as relevant today as ever. Semyon Bychkov conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Chorus and superb soloists in a performance of the work in Britten’s 100th anniversary year, on Remembrance Sunday and in an iconic building whose association with remembrance goes back nearly a century.

Event in association with the Royal British Legion

Please note that soprano Sabina Cvilak and tenor Allan Clayton have replaced the originally advertised soloists for this concert.
