Under the baton of conductor, Peter Luff

Four of Brisbane's finest ensembles join forces to perform Verdi's monumental Requiem.

This stirring performance features Brisbane Chorale, The Queensland Choir, Brisbane Concert Choir and Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of outstanding Brisbane conductor, Peter Luff.

From the thunderbolt explosions of the Dies Irae to the hushed prayers of the Libera Me, Verdi's use of vigorous rhythms, sublime melodies, and dramatic contrasts showcases the insight, passion, and drama of one of history's most superlative opera composers in his musical setting of the venerable funeral mass.

The Requiem's composition came near the end of Verdi's long career after he had written all but his final two operas and is unlike anything else in his output.
