Op 22 november is het honderd jaar geleden dat Benjamin Britten werd geboren. Ter gelegenheid hiervan wordt de componist geëerd met vele cd-uitgaven – veel nieuw, maar ook oud materiaal in verzamelboxen. Een daarvan is The Very Best of Benjamin Britten, een set van drie cd’s die de beste opnames van Britten uit de catalogi van Virgin Classics en EMI claimt te omvatten. De nadruk ligt op het orkestwerk, met het Vioolconcert als opvallende afwezige. Van zijn vaak briljante kamermuziek en liederen horen we weinig terug en van de opera’s zijn korte fragmenten opgenomen. Terecht dat er in ieder geval iets van de opera’s op deze cd’s staat, want de opera is het genre waaraan Britten de belangrijkste bijdrage heeft geleverd. Maar ook van de andere stukken is vaak slechts één deel te horen. Als de samenstellers écht keuzes hadden gemaakt, hadden er nog een paar werken in hun geheel op gekund. Wel integraal opgenomen zijn de Frank Bridge-variaties, fantastisch gespeeld door het Noors Kamerorkest. Dat van het Tweede strijkkwartet in de uitvoering van het Belcea Quartet alleen het Vivace overblijft, is doodzonde, maar als startpunt voor wie Britten nog niet goed kent, is de cd-set zeer geschikt.
