BENJAMIN BRITTEN 1'he Turn of the Screw

70302 (2 CD SET)

The chamber opera The Turn of the Screw was premiered in Venice in 1954

and re-creates the intense and fevered atmosphere of the Henry James psychological drama, in a libretto adapted by Myfanwy Piper. Steuart Bedford, through a long and close association with Britten , captures the essence of the composer's music and this recording, featuring world-renowned soloists,

dramatically depicts the intense emotions of the work. This 2 CD set is accompanied by a full libretto and an in-depth essay and synopsis by Dr. Donald Mitchell of The Britten Estate and Philip Reed of

The Britten-Pears Library.
