Donald Runnicles conducts a concert “à la française”

Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem – conducted here by Donald Runnicles – is among those sacred works that convey a notion of a better world beyond. Echoes of Gregorian chant are mixed with scintillating Impressionist colours to create a magical and ethereal whole. The remaining programme consisting of works by Claude Debussy and Olivier Messiaen is also French and transcendental.
