Notes & Reviews:

The works on this recording cover the entire span of Britten's published output - from the 'Simple Symphony' of 1934, to the string orchestral arrangement of 'Lachrymae' completed in the last year of his life. Britten always retained a special affection for his childhood efforts and in the 'Simple Symphony' reworked his earliest compositions, making them 'more fit for general comsumption'.

This CD should appeal mainly to Britten admirers, but those who like to experiment in off-the-beaten-track repertoire should find much to enjoy. Performances and sonics are first-rate.
