  • Description
  • Reviews
Travel diaries reveal musical inspiration, personal encounters, notes on performances.
This volume brings together all the travel diaries of Sir Peter Pears (1910-1986), principal interpreter of Britten's works. Pears accompanied Britten on many of his trips and the record of their tour of the Far East in 1955 is ofspecial interest. Here the sound of the gamelan orchestras enchanted Britten and deeply influenced his musical development.
"A valuable source of material on the musical development of both Pears and Benjamin Britten...a 'must' for those interested in either." OPERA JOURNAL [US]
