Notes & Reviews:

"The Decca recording was one of the first great achievements of the stereo era. Few opera recordings can claim to be do definitive, with Peter Pears, for who it was written, Owen Brannigan (another member of the original team) and a first-rate cast. Britten conducts superbly and secures splendidly incisive playing." -The Penguin Guide.
