BRITTEN War Requiem

 

In Britten’s War Requiem, the English composer combines musical settings of the traditional Latin Mass for the Dead with searing, graphic World War I poems by Wilfred Owen. Britten’s condemnation of the horrors of war leaves an impact long after the haunting final notes have sounded. Michael Stern, the Kansas City Symphony, Chorus and a trio of superb international vocal soloists join together for this unforgettable concert experience.
