The main reason for acquiring this set is the only recording on CD of Britten’s magical Prince of the Pagodas complete. The composer recorded the work in the 1950s but made large cuts so that it would fit on three LP sidesl. Ever since Oliver Knussen’s account was issued, it has been highly praised for both the music and the performance. It originally came out on Virgin by itself and then was reissued on EMI with Britten’s Symphonic Suite from Gloriana - but with the Bournemouth orchestra and Uri Segal conducting - accompanying the ballet.
