Filling in for concerts to have been conducted by the late Colin Davis, Farnes directs a taut, crisply-detailed account of Britten’s masterpiece. His cast is perfect: Kennedy a slyly seductive Quint; Matthews spot on in conveying the governess’s growing horror and resolve; as telling a Flora and Miles as any on disc. Excellent Barbican sound.
