David Hill, CHief Conductor of the BBC Singers, joins the London Symphony Chorus and LSO for this all-French programme. Duruflé's meditative and intensely moving Requiem is coupled with a fascinating insight into Debussy’s early development, his Symbolist cantata The Blessed Damozel, based on a poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Change of conductor and work

Donald Runnicles is suffering from influenza and has been forced to withdraw from the Barbican performance on Sunday 1 March 2015.

We are extremely grateful to David Hill for agreeing to step in at extremely short notice and conducting Debussy La Damoiselle Elue and Durufle Requiem as originally advertised. Debussy La Mer is replaced with Fauré Pelleas et Melisande suite.
