Allegro, for solo piano
Introduction and Allegro, for piano trio
Suite for violin and piano, op.6
The Moon, for violin and piano
Acclaimed ensemble Chamber Domaine with their director Thomas Kemp return to the Resonus label with an exciting programme of early works by Benjamin Britten, including four significant world premieres.
Entitled 'Journey to Aldeburgh', Chamber Domaine explores works written while Britten was a student at London's Royal College of Music, culminating with the Suite for Violin and Pianoforte, Op.6 and Britten's arrangement for the first Aldeburgh Festival of There is a Willow Grows Aslant a Brook, composed by his teacher Frank Bridge, and heard on disc here for the first time. Further world premieres include the substantial Introduction and Allegro for piano trio, The Moon for violin and piano, and Allegro for solo piano.
'Among the totally unfamiliar pieces, the real rediscovery [...] is the arrangement for 12 instruments of There Is a Willow Grows Aslant a Brook. [...] the Chamber Domaine players conducted by Thomas Kemp capture its fragile essence perfectly [...] The performances are full of that exuberance, and the Sinfonietta has the same irresistible verve.' - The Guardian (CD of the Week)
