This Collector's Edition presents a challenge to reviewers. There's so much of it. I could never do it any sort of justice if I approached this as if reviewing a smaller set. This, after all, comprises 37 CDs. As it is all I have been able to do is to sample, reminisce about known recordings and write around the subject. With this caveat stated, let's make a start.
There are three principal strands of Britten recordings. These are broadly tied into and defined by record companies, artists and eras. First we have Britten recording Britten for Decca.

This solo release from Elizabeth Joy Roe and the London Symphony Orchestra under Emil Tabakov couples two of the 20th century’s greatest piano concertos by Britten and Barber. Roe has been performing both works since a student at Julliard and has extensively studied the intriguing parallels between the two composers. The programme is completed with solo piano nocturnes by each composer: Britten’s Night Piece and Barber’s Nocturne, Homage to John Field, widely considered the father of the nocturne.

Benjamin Britten (1913-76) was one of the most precocious of all composers who have the term child prodigy attached to them. Britten showed a keen interest in music from a very early age – both as a pianist and composer. He would become a formidable pianist, but as remarkable as his early compositions are (he had composed 6 string quartets by the age of 12!), very few people, including Frank Bridge could predict that he would become the 20th centuries greatest opera composers.

“DECCA has used the most recent digital and Cedar technology to improve the original sound, under the overall supervision of veteran technician James Lock. This is one of the great performances of recording history.” Over half a century has passed since this classic DECCA recording was made in Kingsway Hall, London in January 1963. While the performance remains a benchmark, time has left the original analogue master tapes more fragile than ever.

Albion Records is proud to present this new album of unknown music from the early maturity of Ralph Vaughan Williams. In 1911, RVW wrote music for three plays by Euripides, then newly translated into English verse by Gilbert Murray. He wrote music that he considered worthy of the plays, while also satisfying the requirements of Isadora Duncan (for dancing) and Gilbert Murray (who was anxious that the music should not overwhelm the poetry).

Britten's first great opera, written in 1945, remains a touchstone not only for postwar opera, but also anticipates the direction that postmodern music would take later in the century. Written at a time when high modernism was in full swing, Britten bucked the trends by taking a personal, political and musically eclectic approach. It's a small story with great ramifications: A sadistic fisherman and his violent actions turn him into the bane of his community, resulting in his suicide.
