Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

'A Child of Our Time', written at the beginning of the second world war as an expression of 'man's inhumanity to man', has become one of Tippett's most widely known works. It is seen to symbolize the composer's extra-material concerns, both political and psychological. This unique recording was conducted by the composer himself when he was 85.
