On this milestone audiophile download, internationally acclaimed composer Benjamin Britten conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, as well as, soloist Peter Pears and Claire Watson. This magnificent album is the premiere recording of the stunning opera, Peter Grimes. Conducting his own compositions, Britten brings forth every dramatic nuance envisioned with crystalline clarity. Peter Pears, the composer’s muse, plays with passionate emotion and Watson’s elegant vocals are keystones on this breathtaking album. The opera follows the developing friendship between Pears and Watson’s characters. A truly enthralling experience, this is one of the greatest audiophile operas ever! Highly recommended.

Reviews
"The first English opera on the grand scale which at once proclaimed itself a masterpiece, and which was soon to enter the repertoire of opera houses all over the world...one can appreciate to the full the inventiveness, beauty, and vividness of the orchestration, the whole masterly construction of the opera." - Gramophone
