This collection of works for string orchestra combines two of Britten’s first masterpieces, Simple Symphony and the Frank Bridge Variations, with the even earlier Elegy for Strings—recorded here for the first time—and Two Portraits, composed between the ages of 14-16. Directed by the Norwegian violinist Terje Tønnesen, the Swedish string ensemble Camerata Nordica performs this program with an engaging directness and striking virtuosity—qualities which no doubt contributed to the team being entrusted by the Britten-Pears Foundation with making the world première recording of the Elegy, as well as giving its first public performance during the 2013 BBC Proms.
