. . . [an] essential all-orchestral and all-Britten program on a single disc from Decca. Freed from limited-edition box sets, anyone who loves music from the last century will find this a mandatory purchase . . . Britten's peerless musicianship continues to make those versions nearly definitive as well. The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden finishes the disc with excellence . . . it remains a must-have for any serious collection of classical music.
