this price is unnecessarily tiny. i would buy this for £30.,
This review is from: Britten: Les Illuminations / Quatre Chansons Francaises / Serenade for Tenor, Horn & Strings (Audio CD)
I love Britten's music and Les Illuminations and Serenade are two of his most brilliant works. Felicity Lott sings wonderfully - she has a incredible technique and feel for the music, and the drama and excitement she puts into the performance make it even better. Anthony Rolfe Johnson is one of my very favourite singers, and my definite #1 for singing Britten (he has recorded quite a lot, and it is all perfect).
My only problem is the 4 french songs. I just don't like them. Of course, they are performed excellently, I just don't like them. But the fact that I'm still giving this CD 5 stars, despite these, surely is testament to the quality of the other two pieces...
