5.0 out of 5 stars Concertos by Benjamin Britten, 15 Sep 2012
This review is from: Britten: Piano and Violin Concertos (Audio CD)
Britten composed two concertos - one each for piano and for violin that are both featured on this seminal CD. The concertos are performed by two close Russian friends of Britten's who both are supremely talented - Sviatoslav Richter on piano and Mark Lubotsky on violin. The accompanying English Chamber Orchestra is conducted by the composer. Both concertos are quite early pieces, written in 1938/39, and both are lyrical works. Britten's unique orchestral textures are already apparent, though his indebtedness to Shostakovich and Prokofiev are evident. These pieces, along with his Bridge Variations and Simple Symphony are ideal places to start getting into Britten compositions.
