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.
Britten's eastern influences were seen and heard in the ballet The Prince of the Pagodas (1957) and later in two chamber operas, Curlew River (1964) and The Prodigal Son. Here Britten is seen in Japan playing a shō. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
