Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This live recording of Billy Budd comes from the 2010 Glyndebourne Festival. Jacques Imbrailo as Billy Budd is simplicity at its best, with a warmth of tone and excellent diction. Iain Paterson as Redburn the First Lieutenant, leads the officers powerfully, his trio with Lieutenant Ratcliffe (Darren Jeffery) and Flint (Matthew Rose) is as good as any moment in opera can get.

Notes & Reviews:
