enjamin Britten's fiery plea against war has lost none of its significance since its premiere in 1962. Despite its large instrumentation, the War Requiem is not primarily impressive for its monumental sounds; the composition becomes a work of remembrance and also of mourning for so many war dead, especially through its quiet and haunting passages.
Our performance at the Tonhalle Maag follows the tradition that has always been cultivated and unites an international soloist trio on stage with an American soprano, a British tenor and a German-Canadian baritone.
