Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Britten conducting his own music is always (well, almost always) the performance against which all others must be compared. Britten conducting his music written specifically for children brought out the best of his best. So it is with this reissue of the 1956 recording of his children's opera The Little Sweep. Such innocence, such charm, such enthusiasm are totally beguiling.
