DESCRIZIONE

Per comporre questi tre cicli liederistici, Britten trasse ispirazione dai massimi poeti europei come Shakespeare, Blake, Shelley, Keats, ma anche Rimbaud. La musica di Britten moltiplica il rapporto tra voci e strumenti, passando dai soli archi (Les Illuminations) a un ensemble d’archi con strumenti a fiato obbligati, arpa e timpani (Nocturne), senza dimenticare l’affascinante dialogo con il corno nella Serenade. Un mondo sonoro unico che ci viene svelato da un ensemble di musicisti in magnifica forma.
