Description
These are three of British musical genius Benjamin Britten's most deservedly celebrated works. Les Illuminations is a song cycle for soprano and orchestra set to the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud.

"Franziska Hirzel actually does a wonderful job with some very difficult music—and really makes us sit up and take notice when she floats that high B-Flat in 'Phrase', allowing it to trail downward in a lovely little glissando. It's beautiful, and her intensity and expressive range are truly first-class throughout—as is the orchestral work."—Classics Today

"[In The Variations], Britten uses a variety of forms—a March, a Romance, a Waltz, a Bourée, a Funeral March, an Aria. The orchestra whips from mood to mood with aplomb, relishing the ingenuity…. The Kiev Chamber Orchestra [are] skilled ensemble players with a feel for the variety, imagination and colour of Britten's works for string orchestra."—Musicweb International
