Benjamin Britten, Paperback


Benjamin Britten (1913-76) changed the course of English music with highly original works such as his opera Peter Grimes.

While his music is performed more widely than those of any other English composer, his international success did not prevent him from continuing to draw inspiration from his native land.

In this engaging biography, the author creates a portrait of a great artist, exploring his wide-ranging compositions in detail and discussing the many contradictions that pervaded Britten's fascinating life and career.
