This review is from: Britten: A Midsummer Night's Dream (Audio CD)
Yes, a fine performance. Hickox was an excellent Britten conductor, much at home in this piece. But here magic is the principal ingredient, and I find it a bit in short supply. Whatever his qualities as an actor, Deller's ethereal voice (and he has the benefit of BB himself on the podium) is unsurpassed in the central role.
