Around Britten


Matthew Barley adds to his reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative and creative performers with the new programme and CD Around Britten – celebrating the centenary of Britten’s birth with a selection of his works, including the Third Cello Suite and pieces by Sir John Tavener and Gavin Bryars.

As always, Barley’s playing is fearless. The disc is a voyage around the cello as well as around Britten, and one that never becomes relentless – Gramophone

The performance of the Suite is a very fine one – International Record Review

This engrossing recital is a defining statement in modern cello playing – Sinfini Music
