Previn: Brief Encounter

U.K. release date: April 25, 2011


CD, Brief Encounter, Crotchet Classical Music

U.S. release date: May 24, 2011



Brief review, Tim Ashley,, 2 stars


"Previn and Caird have created an opera of lasting value. The music is quite tonal, in the tradition of the American symphonic style espoused by Copland, Bernstein, Barber, Menotti and others. Whereas lesser talents working in this stylistic vein all too often come across as boring, Johnny-come-lately imitators, Previn demonstrates how the style retains tremendous vitality in the hands of a master composer."--Arlo McKinnon, Opera News of October 2011
