Product Description

LIVE RECORDING FROM THE SCHWETZINGEN SWR FESTIVAL, 1990

Governess HELEN FIELD
Mrs Grose MENAI DAVIES
Quint/Prologue RICHARD GREAGER
Flora MACHIKO OBATA

STUTTGART RADIO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (SWR)
Conductor STEUART BEDFORD
Stage Director MICHAEL HAMPE

This interpretation of Benjamin Britten's The Turn of the Screw by Michael Hampe was recorded in 1990 at the Schwetzingen SWR Festival in a co-production with the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London, and the Opera of Cologne in 1990. The Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra played under the direction of Steuart Bedford, an expert in Britten's orchestral language. Based on the novel by Henry James The Turn of the Screw is certainly more than just a beautifully spine-chilling gothic story. In his musical rendering, Britten succeeds in masterfully portraying the fateful relationships of the characters involved. Helen Field, Menai Davies, Machiko Obata and Richard Greager bring the characters in this moving plot to life in a very impressive way and convince the audience with superb voices.
