In this re-release, a part of Chandos' Richard Hickox Legacy series, Hickox conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in a varied selection of works by Benjamin Britten, marking the great composer's centenary year. The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra was originally written for the educational documentary film Instruments of the Orchestra. In the course of thirteen different variations Britten passes a theme by Henry Purcell through the instrumental sections of the orchestra, dismantling it, and putting it back together in a dazzling fugue that ends the work. Premiered in 1975, the Suite on English Folk Tunes 'A time there was...' was the composer's last orchestral work. The scoring of this masterpiece is lean and spare, but devastating in effect. Gramophone had this to say: 'The vigour, snap and discipline of this Bournemouth performance are utterly commendable: equally Hickox sees to it that the wistful concluding "Lord Melbourne" touches to the very marrow.' Ending the disc is the 'Four Sea Interludes' from Peter Grimes, a work that draws inspiration from Suffolk, Britten's native county, and is richly evocative of the region's coastal land- and seascapes.
