Amsterdam Sinfonietta / Candida Thompson
In 2013, the music world celebrates the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten. His brilliant manner of writing for string orchestra, his unique treatment of text and his rich repertory of musical colors are all abundantly clear from the masterpieces featured on this recording: Les Illuminations; Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge; and Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings.
