Benjamin Britten - A Life in Pictures
Unique among his siblings - and much to their mother's delight - young Benjamin was an outstandingly musical child. She gave the boy his first piano lessons. He made his first attempts at composing aged five and at ten, he began to play the viola. Image courtesy of www.britten100.org.
