Notes and Editorial Reviews
The Britten Centenary Production Recorded Live as part of the 66th Aldeburgh Festival Britten's powerful and masterful evocation of the North Sea in all its moods has to audiences all over the world become inextricably linked with the Aldeburgh that was home to George Crabbe (author of the 'The Borough' from which the story originates) in the eighteenth century and Britten in the twentieth. Steuart Bedford leads a vast and accomplished ensemble on this new live recording, created shortly before the group's unique staging of the work on the beach at Aldeburgh as part of the town's world-renowned festival.
