Here at KYD we love our wonderful members – you are the reason we can continue to publish great Australian writing, including this week’s Tasmania Showcase. That’s why, to say thanks for your support, we’re giving all new and current Tasmania-based KYD Members the chance to win two tickets to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Fauré Requiem on 4 August.
In Gabriel Fauré’s setting of the Requiem, the soul journeys from this life to the next on wings of glorious song. Quiet and reflective, the Fauré Requiem eschews the fire and brimstone dramatics of many settings of the Mass for the Dead and instead offers music that soothes and consoles. With its comforting mood and ravishingly beautiful episodes, this is one of the most beloved of all works for choir and orchestra.
Accompanying the Requiem is a new work by Australian composer Melody Eötvös. Commissioned by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, the new composition takes up the Shakespeare theme of the TSO’s 70th-anniversary season.
To be entered into the draw automatically, simply purchase a new KYD Membership from just $17.50. Current members, simply email your name and contact details to [email protected].au with the subject line ‘TSO’ to enter.
