Vasily Petrenko conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Part of Classical Season

Vasily Petrenko takes the helm to conduct Verdi's momentous Requiem in this Royal Philharmonic Orchestra concert.

The composer wrote his Requiem after a break from sacred music that lasted 30 years.

Inspired by the deaths of composer Rossini and author Alessandro Manzoni, the work features blazing fanfares, lyrical vocal duets and choral splendour.
