West Australian Symphony Orchestra: WASO Chorus Sings: Cherubini’s Requiem
15 May @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm AWST
The WASO Chorus return to the magnificent acoustics of St Mary’s Cathedral to perform Cherubini’s Requiem in C minor. This ethereal, highly dramatic and ultimately transcendent work was revered by Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Berlioz and Beethoven. In a special transcription by Andrew Foote for Chorus and Organ, the WASO Chorus gives this magnificent work a new lease of life.
“If I were to write a Requiem, Cherubini’s would be my only model.” – Ludwig van Beethoven
