“Stunning” Performance of War Requiem at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Robert D. Thomas, music critic of the Pasadena Star-News/San Gabriel Valley Tribune/Whittier Daily News wrote a magnificent review of the Britten War Requiem performance.

“The choral forces delivered a beautiful tone and were amazingly precise throughout the 84 minutes, but particularly in the extended fugal writing in the “Dies Irae” sections.” and “Two bells — C and F-sharp — continue to toll as they have throughout the piece and the chorus finally dies away in a mysterious vapor. The capacity audience sat spellbound, silent for 20 seconds, before erupting in wave after wave of standing ovations for the performers.”
