Description


The Britten-Pears DVD Collection features four historically and musically significant films from the BBC archives of works and performances by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, one of the greatest English tenors and Britten’s long-term partner and artistic inspiration. None of these films have been available before on any home video format.

This DVD features two recitals with Peter Pears accompanied by Benjamin Britten at the piano. The 1964 black-and-white ‘Celebrity Recital’ film of the pair performing a selection of Britten’s folk song arrangements is unique for featuring Britten performing his own music.

The 1970 colour film of Peter Pears singing Schubert’s great song cycle, Winterreise (sung in German), was produced by the legendary Decca producer, John Culshaw. The songs are staged (Britten accompanying on the piano is not in vision), and introduced with a brief voice-over.
