The recording quality is as good as anything in my collection, and the sense of presence at the performance is tangible. From the pianissimo passages to the all-out tutti crescendi, everyone involved in this production can be proud of the result.
I am on record as not being Britten's greatest fan, but here are three works which most people will enjoy. He was certainly a most inventive composer, and there is a great variety of thematic material and scoring to be enjoyed.
Recommended as a toe in the water for Britten's orchestral works, or as a Must Have for collectors.

I am more familiar with the Peter Grimes Sea Interludes and the Young Person's Guide. Davis provides a particularly musical and sensitive interpretation, with very fine playing by the BBC orchestral musicians. I compared the Davis rendition to other versions, and found it to be a bit better than the classic performance by Andre Previn, and just much more expressive than the one by Steuart Bedford (both with the London Symphony). Davis is similarly compelling in a vivid performance of the Young Person's Guide, and the performance of the Bridge Variations is superb.
As usual with Teldec, the sound engineering is first class. This is an outstanding recording that I think you will love.
