Britten: Les Illuminations
Label: ATMA Classique
Released: August 31, 2010

Following their recordings devoted to Piazzolla and to Bartók, Jean-Marie Zeitouni and the Violons du Roy now turn their attention to one of the dominant musical figures of 20th-century England, Benjamin Britten. Britten was living in Amityville, Long Island, when he finished the song cycle Les Illuminations, based on poems and prose by Arthur Rimbaud. For this new recording of one of Britten's most effective works, soprano Karina Gauvin employs the full range of her expressive palette and great virtuosity.
