Britten’s lost war scores to have Manchester premiere

Music written by Benjamin Britten for a 1942 CBS radio series is to be performed in public for the first time next month. The scores, discarded for decades, have been reconstructed by Colin Matthews, one of the composer’s close associates. Sources at the Halle Orchestra tell us that the quality is top-drawer Britten.

Details just released here.
