Notes & Reviews:

Good CD Guide
This recording remains as fresh and inspired as the day it was made. Britten's taut, disciplined yet magical reading is unsurpassed.

Gramophone Magazine
It hardly needs saying that Britten's direction of his piece is superlative...In this Dream, Britten combines the sense of atmosphere and beauty of tone...And it is an enthralling experience.
