The Symphony Chorus of New Orleans joins The Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in performing Benjamin Britten’s Ballad of Heroes.
In this moving piece, Britten sets the complex poetry of W.H. Auden and Randall Swingler to music, contemplating the strange circumstances under which even pacifists decide that there is no other option but to bring war to those who oppress others.
