Britten: 15 facts about the great composer
Britten lived in most of his life in Aldeburgh, in the red house, next to the golf course where he would take brisk afternoon strolls to clear his head for more composing. This picture was taken in 1955 in the garden of Aldeburgh and sees Britten having a discussion with Imogen Holst (daughter of Gustav) and Peter Pears.
