Britten had a great affinity with chamber music from an early age; it provided him with the perfect medium for experimenting with and assimilating a wide variety of musical styles and techniques. Featuring a selection of quartets, suites and sonatas, as well as some of the many works that Britten wrote for distinguished soloists of his time, this set is a fitting tribute to one of the 20th century’s most accomplished chamber music composers.This box is part of EMI's series of releases celebrating the Benjamin Britten centenary.
