Notes & Reviews:

"...Comparisons with the incomparable apart, this latest Naxos reissue of still more Collins Classics material makes an easy top recommendation. The high standards of the Bedford-inspired series endure, the choice of repertoire was sound, the superior engineering survives, and the price-point is low... In sum, so long as you promise yourself to hear the Richter account someday, and the pioneering Abrams version on EMI, then this Naxos release offers far and away the best available summary of Britten's thoughts on the (two-handed) piano concerto..." -Fanfare
