The Philharmonia comes together with conductor Jérémie Rhorer, two stellar soloists and full chorus for two glorious Requiems. Duruflé’s Requiem is woven through with Gregorian chant and elegantly soars into a final blissful In Paradisum. Likewise, Fauré’s Requiem is music of compassion, a very human response to loss.
Before, join the Philharmonia Chamber Players in their final concert of the season, as they perform works showcasing the colour and expression of the harp in this free performance.
