On 24 December 2011, Chris de Souza surveyed recordings of Britten's, The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, and made this his #1 choice among all available recordings.

It was not an issue for him, or for me, that there is no narration on this version, just the glorious music. Those desiring a version with narration must look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed 14 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was not disappointed in that the BBC's "Building a Library" recommended this version. The great thing is that it was conducted by the composer; a useful point, considering the composer knows exactly how his composition should be played. Another relief compared to some other versions is that there are no interruptions by narrators explaining the instruments used in the piece. Music straight through from start to finish!
