Allan Clayton, tenor

Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, op. 31 (1943)
Symphony No. 7 E major, WAB 107 (1883)
Shortly before the end of the Second World War, Benjamin Britten wrote his Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings on six texts by English poets from different centuries. The result is a touching piece of night music, which is turned into a special experience by the tender, gentle and pure tenor voice of the British Allan Clayton.
Bruckner achieved his breakthrough with the public with his 7th Symphony. It was the turning point for the better in his life.
