Kyiv musicians to help perform Britten’s War Requiem at Prague Castle

Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem will be performed at the Vladislav Hall of Prague Castle on September 3, the organisers of the Prague Sounds festival said on Thursday. The monumental piece will be performed by members of a number of Czech ensembles and the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra.

Prague Sounds founder Marek Brabec said it would be an exceptional piece at an exceptional concert at an exceptional time, adding that the event would be enhanced by the unique setting.

The Vladislav Hall is linked to important events in the history of the Czech nation.
