Benjamin Britten was the finest opera composer that England has ever produced. And his other masterpieces – including the War Requiem, concertos, and countless songs – reveal a composer of extraordinary skill and originality.
Britten used money bequeathed to him by his mother to buy the Old Mill in Snape, Suffolk, which became his country home. He spent much of his time there in 1944 working on Peter Grimes. Photo by Roland Haupt. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
