Description: If you don’t count the Bridge arrangement, this new dose of Young Britten brings 18 minutes of music from the early 1930s, of the same general period as the other two works but showing us again how, even when influenced by Ravel and the neo-classical Stravinsky, Britten still had a vein of English pastoralism which had vanished from his post-war œuvre. Chamber Domaine; Thomas Kemp (violin).
