    More Britten.





    Lott's gorgeous singing of Les Illuminations might just be my favourite version of this work, but Rolfe Johnson doesn't quite erase memories of Pears in the Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. This one, transferred from sometimes crackly 78s, recorded in 1944 has the incomparable Dennis Brain on the horn and finds Pears in fesher voice than he was in his later, sonically superior recording. The Serenade is almost a love song to Pears and no other singer has quite matched Pears's insights into the poetry, though others may have sung with sweeter tone.
    "It's not enough to have a beautiful voice." Maria Callas

    Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
    Pittsburg SO - Honeck (live recording)

    Much better! Generally faster tempi. Emotionally moving. Much, much, better sound recording quality.

    Muti was always a great Tchaikovsky conductor. Highly recommended!
