QuoteThis is what I have been listening to lately. Excellent performances of the two pieces I consider Ben's masterpieces (granted that there's so much I haven't yet heard).
Quote from: Roasted Swan on Today at 05:15:09 AMRather excited to pick up in a local Charity Shop yesterday a complete study score of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" All the more so since it is signed Toby Robertson on the inside front cover. As far as Google can tell me it looks like Toby Robertson was a theatre director who did a well-regarded staging of the work for Scottish Opera back in the early 70's. From various stage directions scribbled through this score I'm assuming it was his working copy of the score for that production. This is not one of the Britten operas I know at all well - even though I have a couple of recordings - so this is prompting me to listen/follow and hopefully enjoy.......
