Gabriel Jackson on his Requiem and Nicholas Phan on Benjamin Britten

19th Nov 2012

Naxos has recently released a disc of the Requiem by the British composer Gabriel Jackson, sung by the Vasari Singers conducted by Jeremy Backhouse. Gramophone's deputy editor Sarah Kirkup spoke to Jackson about the work and how he arrived at the text which combines the words of the traditional Requiem Mass with poems drawn from many different cultures. And James Jolly spoke to the American tenor Nicholas Phan about his second disc of music by Benjamin Britten, a disc – released by Avie – that celebrates some of the other strong artistic partnerships in the composer's life - with the horn-player Dennis Brain and the harpist Osian Ellis.
