Rezension:

It is a fascinating collection and one that keeps the reader utterly enthralled ... The final chapters are deeply powerful and intensely moving - I certainly had not managed to retain dry eyes by the end. SPIRITED MAGAZINE, December 2013 Superbly laid out spreads of photographs from premieres of Britten's stage works ... Britten in Pictures is sure to delight its intended audience, that of the music lover. MUSIC AND LETTERS, January 2014 Walker has worked diligently on telling the full story of Britten's life throughout pictures (...) Walker's superb collation of this visual material will prove indispensable during the centenary year and beyond. CLASSICAL MUSIC Given that no biography ever contains enough illustrations, Lucy Walker's Britten in Pictures (...) is especially welcome (...) A fascinating essay by Christopher Grogan analyses the way Britten presented himself in photographs and paintings, and the book also includes pictures of opera sets, costume designs, photographs of manuscripts and - most touchingly - some of the letters Britten and Pears wrote to each other. DAILY TELEGRAPHBritten was uncomfortable in front of a camera, at best hiding his true self behind an 'enigmatic smile'. (...) but (these pictures) reveal a more relaxed, happier man to set against the tense, darkly troubled persona suggested by many of his later works. BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE(O)ne need go no further than Lucy Walker's handsome compilation to get the essence of this composer, his life, and his works. Highly Recommended. THE DELIAN A unique and highly recommended body of captioned images, "Britten in Pictures" will be of special interest to his legions of fans and students of his life and accomplishments.

BMS NEWS (A) truly magnificent collection of hundreds of images in color and black and white from the composer's childhood to a poignant chapter on the events immediately after his death, and in his memory. (...) Britten in Pictures is a vibrant and colorful addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in understanding the music and musicianship of Britten in his centenary year.
