Britten: Serenade; Les Illuminations; Nocturne Product Description



Britten: Serenade; Les Illuminations; Nocturne by Brain / Britten / New Symphony Orchestra / Pears was released May 23, 2006 on the Decca label. The three orchestral song cycles collected here are central to the Britten canon of recorded repertoire and whereas Pears' other recordings of the Serenade and Les Illuminations (with Boyd Neel and Benjamin Britten as conductors) have been in circulation, this mono recording with Goossens receives its first and much-anticipated release on CD. All three recordings date from the 1950s and catch Pears in full vocal flight. Britten: Serenade; Les Illuminations; Nocturne contains a single disc with 3 songs.
