The Times’ 31 December issue identified important arts events for 2011. Richard Morrison flagged up the City of London Festival’s Australian focus and suggested the highlight to be the London premiere of Peter Sculthorpe’s Reqiuem with didgeridoo, in Southwark Cathedral on 4 July.
From the City of London Festival website:
Our international focus this year is on the creative and cultural riches of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Australia’s foremost didgeridoo player, William Barton, joins the Choir of Southwark Cathedral in the European première of a new version of Peter Sculthorpe’s deeply moving Requiem - one of the Festival’s highlights and a truly unique experience.
