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 1945, Britten wrote The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra for an educational film, Instruments of the Orchestra, directed by Muir Mathieson and featuring the LSO conducted by Malcolm Sargent. It became Britten's most popular and most performed work. Photo: Muir Mathieson Archive.
