Lorin Maazel Fest

War Requiem

7-11-2013 Thu 8PM
Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall

Exclusive Sponsor

Unfortunately, during the last two weeks, both our advertised tenor and baritone soloists have been obliged to withdraw from our performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem – tenor Andrew Kennedy for reasons of ill health, and baritone Christian Gerhaher for family reasons.

We are happy to announce that two singers have kindly stepped in at very short notice to make our performance possible. English tenor Timothy Robinson, a featured soloist from our 2008/9 season, returns to our stage for this performance, and American bass-baritone Michael Anthony McGee makes his Hong Kong debut.

War Requiem

 


House Programme

 Leaflet

Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem is his enduring statement on the folly and destruction of war. A setting of the Requiem Mass, intertwined with war-poet Wilfred Owen’s descriptions of the horrors of the trenches, it became Britten’s most famous work. With Hong Kong’s own choral forces, this powerful work will be an unmissable event on Hong Kong’s musical calendar.
