I recorded and produced Britten: Still Falls the Rain with Nicholas Phan in 2012 and Anthony Tommasini called it one of the best classical recordings of the year.

BRITTEN: VOCAL WORKS Nicholas Phan, tenor; Myra Huang, pianist; other artists (Avie AV2258; CD). The young tenor Nicholas Phan again proves himself an affecting interpreter of Britten’s music. His new recording, “Still Falls the Rain,” offers seldom-heard Britten works, including “The Heart of the Matter” (revised by Peter Pears), for tenor, horn, piano and narrator (the actor Alan Cumming). ANTHONY TOMMASINI
