Notes & Reviews:

This live recording conducted by the London Philharmonic Orchestra's highly acclaimed Principal Conductor, Vladimir Jurowski, brings together three of Britten's early works. Written just before his published Opus 1, the Double Concerto for Violin and Viola was never performed during Britten's lifetime, but already demostrates his mature style. The memorable way that the string orchestra depicts different characteristics of Britten's composition teacher in the 'Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge' led it to become Britten's first popular classic. 'Les Illuminations' sets Rimbaud's poetry in vividly realized musical images, making it the crowning masterpiece of Britten's early years.
