2013 marks the centenary of the birth of the great British composer Benjamin Britten and his 10 CD set from Documents is being released to celebrate his work. It includes the composer’s legendary 1958 recording of his celebrated opera Peter Grimes as well as classic performances of the Serenade for tenor, horn and strings, the song cycle Les Illuminations, the Sinfonia da Requiem, the Nocturne, the ballet music to The Prince of the Pagodas, and the Ceremony of Carols.

Benjamin Britten’s first opera ‘Peter Grimes’ was a sensational success and marked his international breakthrough as a composer. The London recording of 1958, conducted by Britten himself that appears here, enjoys benchmark status and is regarded as a milestone in the history of the gramophone. As well as Britten‘s lifelong partner Peter Pears, here to be heard in Schubert’s song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin, this selection also features the likes of Herbert von Karajan, the Vienna Boys’ Choir, the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Dennis Brain.
