Notes & Reviews:

The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is a virtuoso orchestral spectacular that RR has wanted to record for many years. Sinfonia da Requiem is widely considered to be Britten's finest orchestral inspiration, full of kaleidoscopic color and wide dynamic range. The music of Peter Grimes, Britten's operatic masterpiece, is most often heard in the well-known suite of orchestral Sea Interludes and Passacaglia. This is music of haunting atmosphere, and the final Storm brings the program to an exciting conclusion. All of this gripping music has been captured in brilliant HDCD sound by multi-Grammy Award nominee, engineer Keith O. Johnson.

”A new release from Keith O. Johnson’s label brings us Benjamin Britten’s best known orchestral works in disciplined readings, dazzlingly recorded in HDCD sound.”-Fanfare
