Ambrosian Opera Chorus
London Symphony Orchestra
BBC Music Magazine
“a definitive performance, superbly captured by producer John Culshaw. Peter Pears's Captain Vere oversees matters masterfully, but it's Peter Glossop and Michael Langdon as the pitiable Budd and odious Claggart who really drive the action.”
The Penguin Guide to Recorded Music
“Britten himself has an outstanding cast, with Glossop a bluff, heroic Billy and Langdon a sharply dark-toned Claggart, making these symbol-figures believable. Magnificent sound, and the many richly imaginative strokes - atmospheric as well as dramatic - are superbly managed.”
