Notes & Reviews:

This program, largely devoted to striking works of the youthful Britten, allows the listener to discover the exceptional talent of a string orchestra unlike any other: the European Camerata.

Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge/Lachrymae/Two portraits/ Simple Symphony. This programme is largely devoted to striking works of a youthful Britten, the great British composer. The extremely talented European Camerata orchestra is conducted by violinist Laurent Qu nelle, and has only been recorded once before.
