BRITTEN: Piano Concerto / Johnson Over Jordan Suite
BRITTEN: Piano Concerto / Johnson Over Jordan Suite8.557197
Published Review (Penguin Guide): Joanna MacGregor’s powerful performance of Britten’s Piano Concerto has a formidable advantage over rival versions when it includes as a supplement the slow movement from the original (1938) version of the Concerto, which Britten replaced with the impressive Impromptu when he revised the work in 1945. Steuart Bedford is the ever-sympathetic conductor in this and the other two works, the overture for the early opera, Paul Bunyan, with orchestration amplified by Colin Matthews, and the incidental music which Britten wrote in 1939 for J.B. Priestley’s Johnson over Jordan, one of his ‘time’ plays. Written at high speed, the score is most enjoyable and includes one gem in the delightful dance-band parody, The Spider and the Fly.
