About the album

From liner notes (Clemens Romijn) () Benjamin Britten (1913-1976), is one of the most striking figures among 20th century composers. His works prove that it is possible to compose moving, amusing, and poignant music, while exclusively employing the system of tonality and evading the use of serial, aleatoric and aleatoric techniques. Britten made highly eclectic use of the achievements of western musical culture. With the help of stylistic elements from different historical periods, he attempted to achieve a whole new sort of beauty, and for this reason he occupies a place in "contemporary" music which is entirely his own. Although many composers and enthusiasts in the avant-garde camp have a tendency to denigrate Britten, and many conservative music lovers idolize him as the only true genius produced by the 20th century, a comparable use of eclecticism and similar collage technique can be found in the work of renowned composers such as Luciano Berio, Peter Schat, and Alfred Schnittke. () From liner notes (Pieter Wispelwey) () Three suites, three highlights in the cello literature. Not a cycle, but three individual, formidable statements. The first a picaresque novel, a kaleidoscope, theatrical, grandiose and exotic, the apollonian second , full of power, sophistication and sensitivity, and the tragic third, an inner quest, a journey through memories.
