Brilliant recordings of Britten's chamber and instrumental works on 6 CDs

This November, the music world will celebrate the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten. Not only his operas, his legendary "War Requiem", his orchestral works - it's also his chamber music that should not be forgotten. The musical polymath devoted himself to this genre since his childhood.

This 6 CD boxset features many recordings of great documentary value. Julian Bream, who inspired Britten to write it, plays the "Nocturnal after John Dowland" from 1963. Truls Mørk's recordings of Britten's solo cello suites won the Norwegian cellist a Grammy in 2002.
