The World's Greatest Music
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 April 1939, Britten and Pears sailed to North America. The position of pacifists in Europe was becoming more precarious and Britten was reeling from hostile press reviews of his music. Their relationship evolved and, from then on, they were partners in both their professional and personal lives. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
