Notes & Reviews:

The earliest of the works on this disc, the 'Sinfonia da Requiem', is a memorial to Britten's parents and the victims of war in Europe. The 'Four Sea Interludes & Passacaglia' from Peter Grimes are frequently performed favorites by orchestras around the world. Steuart Bedford leads the mighty London Symphony Orchestra in these magnificent performances.
