BRITTEN, B.: Reflections - Violin and Viola Works (M. Jones, Thwaite)

Benjamin Britten was a viola player as well as a pianist and wrote a significant body of chamber music for stringed instruments. The works on this recording—which contains important world première recordings—were written between 1925 and 1937, with the exception of the masterpiece for viola, Lachrymae. Each reveals some characteristic aspect of Britten’s voice, from the variety and wit of the Suite for Violin and Piano, Op 6 to the little-known but absorbingly imaginative Reveille and the remarkably assured 1930 Elegy, written when he was just seventeen.
