The Edinburgh International Festival's 2013 concert series at Usher Hall will conclude on Sat., August 31 at 8 pm with an epic performance of the VERDI REQUIEM. Donald Runnicles will conduct the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and such noteworthy singers as Erin Wall, Luciana D'Intino, Aleksandra Antonenko and Eric Owens, plus the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.

From music of hushed restraint and transcendent hope through to the thunder-clap drums that depict the day of judgement in the terrifying Dies Irae, the Requiem is a magnificent work full of gigantic grandeur and dramatic contrasts.

The concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 at a future date.
