Title: British Composers: Britten Walton & Tippet / Various
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The centerpiece of this collection of works by Britten and his great contemporaries Walton and Tippett is the Spring Symphony, a exuberant yet thoughtful masterpiece of Britten's early maturity that set English poetry of different eras. It is complemented by the atmospheric "Sea Interludes" from Peter Grimes, the violin concertos of both Britten and Walton and chamber and chamber-orchestral works by all three composers, including Tippett's richly woven Concerto for Double String Orchestra.
