Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
This recording brings together three youthful masterworks all composed by Benjamin Britten before his 30th birthday.Originally released in 2005 Britten: Les Illuminations has been re-issued as part of Linns ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the labels award-winning catalogue. These are highly insightful performances, widely considered to be modern reference versions to set next to Britten's own. Clio Gould and the ensemble demonstrate playing of impressive unanimity of purpose, joyous intensity and clarity of detail. The ensemble is joined by the Royal Philharmonic Societys 2012 Singer of the Year Toby Spence, for two of Brittens most popular song cycles. Toby Spences voice is ideally suited to the wide-ranging demands that Britten makes on it; his tonal freshness and acutely observed articulation of the words are absorbing. Martin Owen, whose horn playing has drawn comparisons with Dennis Brain, is equal to every one of the near-impossible tasks set him by Britten in the Serenade. Re-defining the string orchestra, Scottish Ensemble inspires audiences with vibrant and powerful performances. SE is the UKs only professional string orchestra, built around a core of twelve outstanding string players. The ensemble is known both in the UK and internationally for its versatility and ambitious programming. Performing standing up, the individual layers bring an energetic and passionate dynamic to every performance. Alongside performances across Scotland, SE presents an annual series of concerts at Wigmore Hall and has appeared at BBC Proms and the Edinburgh International, City of London, Aldeburgh and St Magnus festivals.
