Britten's Century : Celebrating 100 Years of Britten, Hardback Book

Britten's Century : Celebrating 100 Years of Britten Hardback

Edited by Mark Bostridge


Britten's Century considers various aspects of Britten's life and work.

The book is written by biographers, performers and music critics.

Here is a wealth of subject matter - Britten's operatic output, his orchestral works, his contribution to the revival of English song.

Biographically, this book moves on beyond the relationship with Peter Pears and the salacious speculation about his infatuation with various boys, to a consideration of Britten's experience as a homosexual man living in a largely homophobic society.

Another area here which is often overlooked is the view of Britten from outside the British Isles - the USA and Italy, where his operas have long been extremely popular.
