2014 Concerts

An Australian War Requiem

Sunday 10 August 2014 at 3pm

This very special concert marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1—the Great War—in 1914 and of the Gallipoli campaign in 1915. It presents a meditation on conflict and loss from a uniquely Australian perspective. This newly-commissioned work takes as its main text letters between Australian soldiers at the front and their mothers at home, and paints a picture of grief and sacrifice in a truly universal way that transcends the national context.
