An amazing recording by Fenella Fielding. Her vocal range and texture brings an incredible new life to this brilliant poem. Be prepared to be swept away!! Four Quartets is the culminating achievement of T. S. Eliot's career as a poet.
While containing some of the most musical and unforgettable passages in 20th-century poetry, its four parts, 'Burnt Norton', 'East Coker', 'The Dry Salvages' and 'Little Gidding', present a rigorous meditation on the spiritual, philosophical and personal themes which preoccupied the author.
It was the way in which a private voice was heard to speak for the concerns of an entire generation, in the midst of war and doubt, that confirmed it as an enduring masterpiece.
