Tune in and join us on Wednesday, April 30 live from Carnegie Hall. Robert Spano leads his Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a stirring performance of Britten's War Requiem. Completed in 1962, the work combines the Latin Mass for the Dead with texts by English poet Wilfred Owen, who himself was killed in action just a week before the end of World War I. The concert is part of our Carnegie Hall Live series, a partnership with WQXR and American Public Media.
