Notes & Reviews:

"This 1984 recording appears to have escaped ARG's scrutiny when first issued. It is good that Chandos has seen fit to bring it back. The recorded sound is impressive: clear, open and highly detailed. Bedford is, of course, a master interpreter of Britten's music; and he leads a cogent performance of both works, a bit more exciting in the suite than in the symphony." - Parsons, American Record Guide
