This review is from: Britten conducts Britten (4) (Audio CD)
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.
