Notes & Reviews:
In celebration of Benjamin Britten's 100th anniversary, EMI Classics releases The Very Best of Benjamin Britten. One of the most innovative and imaginative composers of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten was a master of the orchestral genre. This extensive 8-CD collection charts the development of Britten's orchestral voice and features some of his greatest works, including the evocative Four Sea Interludes, the powerful and majestic Sinfonia da Requiem, the virtuosic Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra and the brilliantly colorful ballet score The Prince of the Pagodas.

The disc of music for string orchestra conducted by Iona Brown with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra is an absolute stunner...As a whole this collection this is a valuable asset in its own right, containing as it does readings of many pieces that are otherwise unobtainable. And there are no duds and some real winners among these performances.
