Sydney Philharmonia Choirs will launch into its 90th anniversary year with 'Ode to Liberty', a diverse and daring concert beginning with a world premiere from composer Moya Henderson and climaxing with a piece described as perhaps music’s greatest testament to freedom, the 4th movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 in D Minor.
I’d like to name them all by name: Anna Akhmatova’s Requiem is Australian-born Henderson’s poignant tribute to the women of Stalin’s Russia during the years of persecution and purges.
Fresh from their Sydney Festival success with Oedipus Rex and Symphony of Psalms, the members of Sydney Philharmonia will perform the Requiem for the first time for the opening of their 2010 season
