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 won numerous prizes at the Royal College of Music while continuing to study privately with Frank Bridge. The first of his compositions to garner wide attention were the Sinfonietta (1932), and the choral variations A Boy was Born, composed in 1933 for the BBC Singers.
