About The Artist:
Benjamin Britten was without question one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, writer of such towering operas as Peter Grimes, Billy Budd, The Turn of the Screw and others; orchestral works such as the Cello Symphony (for Rostropovich), the Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra; his string quartets; and his transcendant vocal works, such as the deeply-moving War Requiem.
This 37-CD set features all of his most beloved works, giving a comprehensive overview for beginners, as well as a fantastic value for seasoned collectors. Artists include Sir Simon Rattle, Paavo Järvi, Sir Neville Marriner, Daniel Harding, Steven Isserlis, Peter Pears, Britten himself on the piano, and more!
