This album has an average beat per minute of 90 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 32/160 BPM)

Steuart Bedford and the strings of the English Chamber Orchestra - experienced in performing Britten's works like few other ensembles - give wonderfully vivid renditions of the Variations and the prelude and fugue. But it takes the London Symphony Orchestra, also under Bedford, to play with unalloyed enthusiasm the Young Person's Guide, with its inventive run-through of the instruments and its glorious fugue, all based on Purcell's dignified theme from Abdelazar. The reproduction, apparently untouched from the original release, is fine.
