Britten: War Requiem

By londonsymphony

Merging the Latin Mass for the Dead with anti-war poems by Wilfred Owen, Britten’s War Requiem is an emotional indictment of war as a heroic myth. Noseda & the NSO will mark 100 years since the final armistice of World War I with performances at the Kenndy Center on 29 November & 1 December.
