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 the 1950s, Britten became increasingly influenced by the music of the East, fostered by a tour there with Pears in 1957. Britten saw and loved Japanese Noh plays. Here they are pictured in Bali. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
