Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten: The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (Audio CD)
The original theme that Benjamin Britten used in this has lasted and been loved for 300 plus years.
What Britten did with it was genius - using various parts of the orchestra in each variation on the themes.
It was instrumental (!) in my great love of music when I was a child.
I have never till now owned a copy, but now I am very happy, especially with this recording.
