Notes & Reviews:

The lengthy list of André Previn's talents includes composition.Brief Encounter, his second opera, is a compassionate, exquisitely touching study of emotional infidelity. Based on the screenplay by Noël Coward that became a memorable film,Brief Encounterstars Elizabeth Futral and Nathan Gunn as lovers whose innate morality makes their rapturous gratitude for one another excruciating, since they are already wed to others. Kim Josephson is moving as Laura's bewildered husband; Patrick Summers conducts with his customary intelligence.
