A listener's guide to Britten's 'Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra', also known as 'Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell'. This podcast goes through how Britten ingeniously introduces to us the different elements of the orchestra, through a compelling piece of music, ending with an explosive, brilliant, and mindblowingly complex fugue. Recommended recordings at the end.
