Requiem is one-off performance that will take place at Shoreditch Church on Monday 2 April, hosted by Kaparte Promotions.

It will feature both Donen and O’Donnell playing as part of a 12-piece ensemble that includes string quartet, French horn and assorted woodwinds.

Keyboard player, producer and composer Roger O’Donnell is best know for his work with The Cure but he has also performed in the Psychedelic Furs, the Thompson Twins and Berlin.

The Requiem is his first foray into classical music after his widely-praised 2011 suite, Quieter Trees, inspired by Hockney’s Bigger Trees Near Warter.

Critically celebrated across Europe, Adam Donen’s songs have been compared to those of Cohen and Brel, yet his style is all his own. He has garnered much praise for his performances and transcendental music that takes you through terror and heartbreak, and out the other side.
