Britten on Record is an initiative to explore Britten’s legacy as a performer – either as a conductor or playing the piano in chamber, vocal and two-piano music. Recordings will appear here as they are heard, with artists set to include Sir Peter Pears, Mstislav Rostropovich, Yehudi Menuhin and Sviatoslav Richter among many others.

An introduction to this part of the blog can be read here

The recordings are (most recent first):

Mozart – Piano Concerto no.19 with the English Opera Group Orchestra (Pearl)

Vaughan Williams – On Wenlock Edge with Peter Pears and the Zorian String Quartet (Decca)

Balinese Ceremonial Music with Colin McPhee (Pearl)
