Gramophone Highlights Allan Clayton's 'Must-Have' Britten
Gramophone's Geraint Lewis traces the fascinating history on record of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings and chooses his 'must-have' available version. Our recording with Allan Clayton, Richard Watkins and Aldeburgh Strings was named 'The Modern Choice'.
"Linn for Allan Clayton in 2013 had the supreme good sense to go to Snape Maltings and this unique building immediately places a golden halo around Richard Watkins's rich-toned horn. Of all today's singers Clayton has the greatest colour and range, character and versatility, and he is matched in imagination by the vibrant Aldeburgh Strings."
