Britten: Works Voice Guitar

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
After George Gulyás recent records, including the critically acclaimed 'Complete Lute Works for guitar' on Proprius/Naxos is now a new CD entirely dedicated to music by Benjamin Britten. All the works in which the guitar is included with and performed together with the mezzo-soprano Ivonne Fuchs. On the album presents a solo piece Nocturnal op 70, one of the guitar literature's most important works. The piece reflects the various stages of insomnia, where the ambiguous theme of John Dowland, Come heavy sleep, hint at how sleep, or death, finally enters as a liberator.

In Songs from the Chinese Op 58, we meet a British brooding over the aging process and where we are thrown from the melancholy to the restlessness that turned up in Dance song, a wild dance where the unicorn symbolizes the lost innocence, one of Britten's favourite themes. Folksong Arrangements treats traditional themes that sailor, love and moral themes, as in, The Shooting of his Dearborn, where a young man shoots his sweetheart by accident during the hunt after taking her for a swan.
