Benjamin Britten: A Time There Was / A film by Tony Palmer starring Benjamin Britten, Leonard Bernstein, Janet Baker [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

"This DVD is a digital remastering of a television documentary by Tony Palmer from some years back. Based around an extended and fairly frank interview with Peter Pears, Britten's lifelong partner, which must have occurred not long after Britten's death in 1976 (this issue commemorates the 30th anniversary of that event), it covers the full extent of his life, attempts to explain his genius, includes interviews, often revelatory, with his friends and members of his family, and makes some attempt to examine his complex personality... Much we see is inevitably grainy but its preservation is so important for future generations to understand his character and his greatness." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice)
