Part of the BBC Proms. 'My subject is War, and the pity of War.' Wilfred Owen's shattering verse sits at the heart of Britten's War Requiem - that great pacifist outpouring of horror and sorrow. To mark 100 years since the start of the 1914-18 conflict, the War Requiem is performed here by the same orchestra that premiered it in 1962. The CBSO and Music Director Andris Nelsons are joined by the BBC Proms Youth Choir in its third great English choral work, following powerful performances of Tippett's A Child of Our Time (2012) and Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony (2013). There will be no interval. Finish time approx. 21:15

Performers Susan Gritton (soprano), Toby Spence (tenor), Hanno Muller-Brachmann (baritone).
Company BBC Proms Youth Choir. Company City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Andris Nelsons.
