About

This release is one of three new recordings issued in 2013 by EMI & Virgin Classics in honour of Britten's 100th Birthday. Ian Bostridge, the internationally acclaimed tenor whose "attention to the text always matches Britten's own scrupulous word setting", has recorded this album of songs by Benjamin Britten accompanied by Antonio Pappano.

Featured are works he has never before recorded: Seven sonnets of Michelangelo, Holderlin Fragments, Songs from the Chinese, Winter Words and Four English Songs from the last cycle Who are These Children.
