Cello Symphony - Presto Inquieto 3 - Iii. Cello Symphony - Adagio - Cadenza 4 - Iv. Cello Symphony - Passacaglia: Andante Allegro 5 - I. Sinfonia Da Requiem: Lacrymosa 6 - Ii. Sinfonia Da Requiem: Dies Irae 7 - Iii. Sinfonia Da Requiem: Requiem Aeternam 8 - Cantata Misericordium. My chief interest in this disc was the recording of the Cello Symphony with Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom Benjamin Britten composed the piece in 1963. This recording was made not long after the premiere and joins my other recordings of Benjamin Britten's music made by the composer. The brooding quality of this recording has never been surpassed, particularly the forced jubilation of the Passacaglia.

Good Morning Britten. Benjamin Britten – a voyage of discovery in his centenary year. Listening to Britten – Symphony for cello and orchestra, O. Photo (c) Ben Hogwood. Dedication Mstislav Rostropovich Duration 34′. Audio clips – using the first recording of the Cello Symphony, with Mstislav Rostropovich (cello) and the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Britten himself. With thanks to Decca. Nor does the music dip, developing themes of barely concealed anger and desperation. Just when things seem to be settling down the orchestral percussion rumbles like gunfire in the background, and the shrill woodwind sound their sirens.

The Symphony for Cello and Orchestra or Cello Symphony, Op. 68, was written in 1963 by the British composer Benjamin Britten. He dedicated the work to Mstislav Rostropovich, who gave the work its premiere in Moscow with the composer and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra on 12 March 1964. The work's title reflects the music's more even balance between soloist and orchestra than in the traditional concerto format.
