La Monnaie Chamber Orchestra - Britten: The Turn of the Screw - Gramophone

Sally Matthews transfers her compelling stage presence into a more hysterical and nervous reading of the role, emotional in her commitment to the winning back of Miles’s soul but not always ideally clear of text. Similarly, conductor Ben Glassberg is intent on setting a clear dramatic colour for each scene ... The recording is most suitable and the orchestral woodwind outstanding.
