Notes & Reviews:

"This is prime music-making. Pears is heard at his very best--steady, clear enunciation...and a master of the fine art of 'doing nothing', which is to say not over-interpreting the texts...Britten at the piano is quite impeccable, fully sympathetic to the music and the performer..." -Parsons, ARG
