Details

Britten was one of the greatest English composers of the 20th century and for four decades was a key figure in the country's cultural life. This biography teases out his paradoxes, as an innovative composer who revered predecessors such as Purcell and as a supporter of left-wing causes who was on friendly terms with royalty. Written by a Suffolk poet, it also emphasizes Britten's affinity with the county's marshes and beaches and the literary inspirations behind his work.
