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.
At three months old, Benjamin nearly died from pneumonia. His parents were told that he would probably not enjoy a normal, healthy life, but he recovered better than expected and went on to become a keen tennis player and cricketer. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
