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.
Unique among his siblings - and much to their mother's delight - young Benjamin was an outstandingly musical child. She gave the boy his first piano lessons. He made his first attempts at composing aged five and at ten, he began to play the viola. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
