EMI new release Britten Centenary, Benjamin Britten’s Vocal Works

Posted on 06 August 2013 by admin

This collection features such masterpieces as the Serenade and Nocturne, the haunting Winter Words, the much-loved folksong arrangements, and the Michelangelo Sonnets and Holy Sonnets of John Donne performed by Peter Pears with the composer at the piano.

In fact, as this anthology shows, Benjamin Britten’s Vocal Works  took inspiration not only from the great English poets, but from a much wider palette including Rimbaud, Hugo, Verlaine and Michelangelo, always displaying an astonishingly sensitive and sophisticated approach to word-setting.
