Notes & Reviews:

Artist Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet, Nikolai Lugansky, Hallé Orchestra, and Kent Nagano come together to perform 4 pieces by English Composer, Benjamin Britten. Exciting, interesting and beautiful, these performances each carry their own personality.

BBC Music Magazine
Remarkable early Britten works, all performed with sparkling incisiveness. Double Concerto for violin and viola, especially, is a superb statement.

Notes & Reviews:
