Since the foundation of the Festival Strings of Lucerne in 1956, the works of Benjamin

Britten have been among the ensemble‘s core repertoire. These deceptively simple works place high technical demands on the musicians and the orchestra on this recording is more than up to the challenge. These are fresh performances of some very well known compositions.
