Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Brighton Festival Chorus are delighted to present Mozart’s iconic Requiem along with works by contemporary female composers.
Composer-in-residence for the BBC Concert Orchestra, Grammy-nominated Dobrinka Tabakova’s Centuries of Meditations was selected by the PRS Foundation as one of the eleven best pieces of British orchestral music from the past 25 years.
Luscious pizzicato and arco lines make up the contrasting layers and textures that characterise Libby Croad’s Suite for String Orchestra which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 for International Women’s Day in 2018.
Juliette Pochin and Lemn Sissay collaborated on a new piece for chamber orchestra and youth choir, Let There Be Peace, which was originally commissioned for the 2020 Brighton Festival. This will be its premiere live performance.
The concert concludes with Mozart’s Requiem which was famously completed after his death by his pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr. Uniquely for this performance, Süssmayr’s Sanctus and Benedictus will be substituted by movements written by Mozart himself.
