Biography

Benjamin Britten was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, in 1913. Although he was already composing vigorously as a child, he nonetheless felt the importance of some solid guidance and in 1928 turned to the composer Frank Bridge; two years later he went to the Royal College of Music in London, studying with Arthur Benjamin, Harold Samuel and John Ireland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive collection 7 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A further instalment in Decca's re-release of Britten conducting his own work. This box set covers orchestral performances and song cycles and the performances are unique; Britten was the definitive conductor of his own work and one of the best accompanists of all time. The partnership between Britten and Pears in the tenor song cycles is almost psychic but there are good things here from Dietrich Fischer Dieskau too. Amazon offer this 7CD set at exceptional value - I paid about [...] a disc. And - put out the flags - the accompanying booklet contains the words of the songs and translations, unlike the previous volumes in this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo for Britten 3 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another stunning compendium and excellent value. Both this and the volume 3 bring together the original recordings of so much of Britten's output. Much of this material is scarcely performed these days, let alone recorded and yet these recordings still sound as fresh as the day that they were made under the composer's baton. Although, to some these recordings may sound a litle dated but I found them refreshingly pure without the technical wizardry. The piano and violin concerti with their Russian style and the cello concerto (performed by Rostropovich) are just amazing.
For lovers of the Pears-Britten musical partnership, these 2 boxed sets are a must-have!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of music by the great man 21 April 2013
By Bill G
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording is of a high standard considering the date of the performances. The music is before its time - and there is lots of it for the price. I feel that this collection provides the best selection of Britten with his style and harmonic genuis well represented.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of three must haves 31 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For myself,I don't care particularly for the choral work,so would count Operas vol 1,2,and this set as indispensible.In this 100 anniversary year for Britten,Decca will be putting out a ltd,3,000 only,complete works 65cd box set,not only Decca,but licensing material from other companies.Personally,I would rather have the material Ben conducted either himself,or supervised.The ltd ed is cheaper,pound for pound,and contains interviews,rehearsal sequences,and music that is of (in my opinion)some lesser significance.I'm more than happy to have the "Britten conducts" boxes,and play these a lot,whereas the 65 cd box is a bit too much,I'd never get around to it,or if I did,would probably only play it once...so in this case,for me,the adage less is more applies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Britten conducts Britten 30 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is always ineresting to hear a composer bring to the surface the subleties of his own invention. There are well known and less well known pieces in these discs all of which bring pleasure and freshness.
