Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Hailed as “a phenomenon” who “pulls together the most intellectually enticing and emotionally gripping [performances] in New York" (The New Yorker), Robert Spano leads his Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in a stirring performance of Britten’s towering masterpiece. The composer created this mammoth meditation against war by juxtaposing Latin texts from the Mass for the Dead with shocking depictions of battle by Wilfred Owen, a British poet who died in World War I.
