Britten's War RequiemSemyon Bychkov conducts as the BBC Symphony Orchestra performs Benjamin Britten's moving War Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall on Remembrance Sunday. Interweaving the poetry of Wilfred Owen with the words of the Requiem Mass, Britten's War Requiem is a deeply stirring and powerful work. Written for the consecration of Coventry Cathedral after its destruction in the Second World War, the piece remains as relevant today as ever. The concert marks a double remembrance: 22nd November is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Britten, one of Britain's greatest ever composers. His works will be celebrated all year round by the BBC while the 2013 Proms has a distinctive Britten flavour.
