Since his death in 1976 many musicians have looked at Benjamin Britten’s scores anew – not simply the repertory Britten never recorded, but the many canonic works he put on tape in the space of only twenty years. Indeed, this set – featuring a wealth of legendary artists such as Sir Simon Rattle, Stephen Hough, Leif Ove Andsnes, Richard Hickox, Ian Bostridge, Anthony Rolfe Johnson, Felicity Lott, Angelika Kirchschlager, Bernard Haitink and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge – brings together some of the finest performances of Britten’s music in recent times. It is newer recordings such as these that testify to the profound impact Britten had on the music of the 20th century, which continues in the 21st.
