Barbaric splendor, savage outbursts, lamentations, an orgiastic feast, wild songs in praise of heathen gods, divine intervention, the fall of a great city, and an exultant paean of praise are just some of the elements that constitute Belshazzar's Feast , a mighty choral drama abounding in sensational effects and musical imagery. During the 1950s and 1960s, it was one of the most popular large-scale choral works of the twentieth century.

Remarkably, its English composer, William Walton, was not yet thirty years old. The Sinfonia da Requiem by Benjamin Britten, born exactly one hundred years ago, also comes from an outstanding English composer still in his twenties. This work of searing power takes its inspiration from the Catholic liturgy. It was Britten's first large-scale, purely orchestral composition not involving a soloist, and it turned out to be one of his best.

Comment

Refined taste and inherent lyricism are at the heat of Lü's approach (to Suor Angelica), not sentimentality or a heavy handed does of rubato. - American Record Guide

His Beckmesser is wonderfully sung and act…a multilayered depiction of a fool who doesn't know he is one. - Opera News
