8. Benjamin Britten: Peter Grimes, Four Sea Interludes - Dawn
Not since Henry Purcell some 250 years earlier had a British composer really written an opera of real significance. Then in 1945, Britten’s masterpiece Peter Grimes was premiered at Sadlers Wells in London. It has stayed in the international repertoire ever since. Katherine says, 'It contains, I think, some of the most brilliant music depicting the sea ever composed.'
