The Last Century
Britten & Contemporaries, episode 33
Of Britten’s music based on a religious theme, The World of the Spirit is a beautiful example.
Besides this piece, which was meant to be a radio cantata, music by Britten’s contemporary Igor Stravinsky will be played: Dumbarton Oaks. It is often referred to as "a modern version of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos," written in concerto-grosso" style for chamber orchestra.Producer:
