Notes & Reviews:

These historic Britten recordings featuring Peter Pears were just recently discovered and restored. This broadcast of Frank Martin's 'Jedermann Monologues' documents the first UK performance of these songs. Britten and Pears are considered one of the twentieth-century's most significant creative and performing partnerships.
