Bravo for Britten,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten conducts Britten (4) (Audio CD)
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!
