  • November 13, 2008 Amazing composition, good edition

    Britten's own piano reduction of the cycle for soprano/tenor and string orchestra. It's a decent reduction, but I make a few edits to make it slightly more playable. The composition is amazing and speaks for itself. The English translations of Rimbaud's texts are not the best...

    , unfortunately (there is no singing translation). To my knowledge this is the only edition available.
