Britten: Paul Bunyan / Hickox, Cranham, Gritton, et al

Album Summary

>Britten, Benjamin : Paul Bunyan, operetta, Op. 17
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Paul Bunyan" lay untouched for more than thirty years after its poorly-received premiere in 1941. After several revisions, it was performed again in 1976 in a much more assured version. Britten was strongly influenced by contemporary American musicals, and there is a decidedly American flavor to his writing. The cast comes fresh from a successful production at Sadler's Wells.
