The definitive performance


This is the 1955 Decca recording, with Britten conducting and Pears as Quint. Turn of the Screw has the best plot of Britten's operas and the cast here deliver credible psychological depth to each of the characters. It is an old recording, in mono and with surface noise, but I'm happy to trade clarity of sound for quality and importance of performance.

Good performance, poor recording.


It's a transfer from disc and is very poor quality in some parts. However, it's only two credits and therefore could be a good introduction to the opera.
