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.
In September 1928, Britten went as a boarder to Gresham's School in Holt, Norfolk. The experience was not a positive one. He hated being separated from his family, disliked the music teacher, and was appalled by the bullying. He is pictured front row far left in this photograph from 1929.
