Product description

Product Description

The second volume in the highly praised survey of all Brittens songs for voice and piano. As before, the great song cycles rub shoulders with individual songs, and early works. There are world premier recordings here as well. Malcolm Martineau has gather together the cream of young British singers, and this second volume will be as eagerly awaited and successful as the first (ONYX4071). Philip Reids excellent booklet notes provide an incisive insight to Brittens song writing a form of composition that occupied the composer from his earliest compositions through to his last year.

Review

Masterful, an excellent set --BBC Radio 3 CD Review 02.07.2011

A second volume spread over two CDs completes Malcolm Martineau's magnificent project to record all Britten's original songs for voice and piano, recorded in the Hoffmann Building at the Snape Maltings using the cream of today's young singers. Rarities include world premiere recordings of songs which the teenage composer wrote for his adored mother, notably a setting of Burns s Of a the airts the wind can blaw and, dating from the end of his life, three posthumously published settings of poems by George Soutar. Listening to this music leaves one in no doubt that Britten ranks among the very greatest song composers, blessed with an unerring instinct for matching word to note and the creation of poetic atmosphere, as well as producing some gloriously singable melodic lines. This collection ranges widely, book ended by three masterly cycles that show Britten in very different lights. --Telegraph,03/11/11
