Mozart Requiem

There is a reason why some classical works become more popular than others: they are great music which speaks eloquently to any listener. This programme features two such pieces, Mozart’s effervescent Clarinet Concerto and the Requiem that was left incomplete at his untimely death, together with his less familiar Te Deum. Clarinettist Emma Johnson, one of the first winners of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, joins our resident Philharmonia Orchestra and the professional boys, men and women of our Three Cathedral Choirs in this concert conducted by Simon Halsey, choral director of the London Symphony Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

This concert is part of the Three Choirs Festival series
